ProPhotonix has recently announced the extension of its laser modules range with the addition of the MatchBox and ARA Series from Integrated Optics. In this post, we’ll learn more about Integrated Optics, its innovative laser module platforms and about the applications that could benefit from these lasers modules.
Integrated Optics is an ISO9001-2015 certified laser module designer and manufacturer and was established in Lithuania in 2012. The company operates its own clean room and a unique semi-automated assembly method for manufacturing its laser modules. Its compact and efficient electronics and know-how, enable its innovative compact laser module platforms. Integrated Optics was recently a finalist in the PRISM Awards for innovation in photonics, with the latest addition to its range of MatchBox laser modules.
Integrated Optics Product Range
Integrated Optics offers two laser platforms, the MatchBox series, and the ARA series. These laser modules are amongst the smallest available on the market today and are ideal for applications such as spectroscopy and LIDAR.
The MatchBox Series
The MatchBox Series includes Continuous Wavelength (CW) Lasers, Nanosecond Micro Lasers, and Wavelength Combiners. These lasers feature an ultra-compact all-in-one design, the laser head includes optical components and driving electronics within a single enclosure. The configurable series incorporates a wide range of wavelengths, output powers and line-width options. Over 150 configurations of the MatchBox Series are available. Customized products can also be configured to meet specific applications requirements.
