Introducing the novel single-bar diode laser package LS

Jenoptik is introducing its novel open heat sink diode laser package “LS” for optical pumping of next-generation solid-state-lasers, which offers significantly increased optical output power levels compared to the industry-standard CS.

While only slightly deviating from the CS form factor, the LS features improved conductive cooling of the laser bar by virtue of a double-side cooled open heat sink design. As a result, the LS offers superior performance compared to the CS with cw-output power levels exceeding 150 W @ 9xx nm thus enabling advanced pump- or direct-diode-laser (DDL) applications.

Featuring an almost identical form factor as the CS-package, Jenoptik’s LS package offers upgrade capability of already existing (pump) assemblies based on the CS with the benefit of boosting optical (pump) power to unprecedented levels.

Join us for a live demonstration of our white light source technologies for medical technology and life science

To further support future image-guided surgical procedures as well as diagnostic imaging applications e.g. based on digital microscopy, Jenoptik has developed a solid-state-based color-gamut tunable (white) light source which allows for high-brightness illumination at virtually any chromaticity setting.

Color-gamut tuning via mixing of three or more independent color-channels allows for imaging under different (multi-)spectral illumination conditions and thus enables improved visual discrimination for the surgeon and/or future AI-based image-processing-algorithms. For minimally invasive endo-illumination e.g. in ophthalmic surgery, the high beam quality of the (white) light source supports gauge sizes beyond 27G.

Join us at our booth for a live demonstration of our white light source technologies, and for an exchange on your specific needs for smart illumination in your next-generation surgical or diagnostic imaging device – may it be in ophthalmology, urology, gynecology and/or endoscopy.

Furthermore, don’t miss our imaging solutions expert Hannes Weise’s presentation “High quality imaging in small spaces: endoscopes for OEM integration” on January 28th at 4:20 p.m. PST.

Opto-electronic solution for PIC testing on wafer level

With the opto-electronic UFO Probe® Card, Jenoptik offers wafer manufacturers and wafer test equipment suppliers a timesaving and yield-increasing solution for the synchronized testing of electronic and photonic components.

Jenoptik's Probe Card enables the simultaneous testing of electrical and photonic functionalities at wafer level – especially at high throughput rates in high-volume production. The innovative optical test concept of the UFO Probe® eliminates the need for active alignment. Each UFO Probe® Card is customized to the individual requirements and the respective wafer layout and is available with both cantilever and vertical needle technology. It covers the wavelength range from 1260 to 1625 nanometers used in the telecommunications and data communications sector, including polarization maintaining for individual or all optical channels.

By incorporating the vertical needle technology, Jenoptik has responded to the increased market requirements, particularly regarding co-packaged optics and ensures the economical use of the UFO Probe® in high-volume test scenarios and ATE operability.

Supporting photonics entrepreneurs in the SPIE Startup Challenge

Jenoptik will also be one of the main sponsors of the SPIE Startup Challenge, a competition for photonics entrepreneurs to pitch their light-based technology business plans to industry experts. Hosted by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, the startup challenge's final presentations will take place during the Photonics West show on January 30, 2024. Founding partner Jenoptik will once again support the event with expertise and cash prizes, which will be awarded to the top three finalists.
