Carlsbad, CA Melles Griot, a global supplier of photonics components and subsystems, announces the 56 RCS series, a new family of high-performance diode lasers assemblies with output ranging from 408 to 830 nm. The first product in the series, the 56 RCS 002/HV, will be unveiled at Laser Munich in June, 2005.

The 56 RCS-series platform is designed to satisfy the requirements for both OEM and end-user applications. Based on the proven Melles Griot 56 ICS technology, the new platform incorporates advanced beamconditioning optics for improved output quality and a new user interface which includes an hour meter, status LEDs, and operator control of laser and thermoelectric cooler currents.

The 56 RCS 002/HV, which produces 50 mW of output at 408 nm, was designed specifically for reprographics applications. However, with both excellent beam quality and highspeed modulation capability, this laser is an ideal choice for any application requiring the ultimate in performance from a violet diode laser, noted Scott Crawford, Product Manager for diode laser products at the Melles Griot Laser Group. The linearly polarized beam is 2.5 mm in diameter, nearly circular (< 1.1:1 aspect ratio), and has an M2 factor of less than 1.2. Modulation rise and fall times are <1.5 nsec.

Melles Griot is a leading global supplier of photonics products including optical components and systems, lasers, motion-control systems, laser measurement instrumentation, optomechanical hardware, and vibration isolated optical tables and workstations. The company has manufacturing and distribution activities in 41 countries, serving industries as diverse as semiconductor, biotechnology, metrology, and research. Melles Griot is a Barloworld Scientific company.
