Z-Laser green diode laser module for cytometry and microscopy


A green diode laser module with 40 mW power and a 515 nm wavelength from Z-Laser (Freiburg, Germany) for industrial applications eliminates power fluctuation. Modulation up to the MHz range is available, allowing for instant control loops under real-time conditions. Applications include structured light projection, bio and medical applications, including cytometry, microscopy and fluorescence.

Z-LASER show preview for Photonics West 2011

World’s first compact green Diode laser module with modulation capability!
515nm, 40mW
Again Z-LASER is presenting its latest developments.

Benefiting from the proven M18 package; a green laser diode was integrated with a power of 40mW and 515nm wavelength. This module is designed for industrial applications. The benefit of a laser diode is that typical DPSS problems like power fluctuation have been eliminated.

Another benefit is the ability for modulation (digital and analogoue modulation at the same time) up to the MHz range is available and allows for instant control loops under real time conditions.

Applications can be found in structured light projection, bio and medical applications such as cytometry, microscopy or fluorescent applications since many markers are sensitive to the 515nm (-> Argon –Krypton Laser).

Fibre coupling and an industrial grade temperature stabilized module will be available too.
