ProPhotonix to distribute Panasonic laser diodes

New range of red, IR and dual wavelength laser diodes for the European, Middle East, and African region

ProPhotonix Ltd, a designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems, laser diode modules and a distributor of laser diodes, has announced its appointment as a franchised distributor of Panasonic's new range of red, infrared and dual wavelength laser diodes in the European, Middle East, and African (EMEA) region.

Panasonic's laser diodes have been designed to reduce size and weight while exhibiting stable power output at high temperatures.

Commenting on the launch, Jeremy Lane, managing director of ProPhotonix, Laser Business Unit said "ProPhotonix' aim is to offer the latest in laser diode technology to our customers and these innovative additions to the Panasonic product line strengthen our portfolio of high quality laser diodes. Where a laser module solution is required, these laser diodes can be integrated into the wide range of ProPhotonix modules as well as custom OEM solutions."

"Panasonic is excited to be partnering with ProPhotonix in the promotion of these new red and infrared laser diodes" said Keith Burlison, Head of Lighting Solutions, Semiconductor Product Marketing Department with Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems Europe GmbH.

"The long-standing relationship between our companies together with the market presence and technical expertise of ProPhotonix will enable us to find many new opportunities in a broad range of applications."

The red (661nm) and infrared (783nm) single-mode, 5.6mm can packaged laser diodes are available with output powers of 100mW and 200mW respectively. These diodes have applications in inspection, identification and alignment applications amongst others.

The 661nm and 783nm wavelengths are available in several dual wavelength packages using Panasonic's proprietary manufacturing technology. Both laser diodes are packaged on a single chip and maintain their respective optical characteristics.

They are available in three package types: 5.6mm can, frame package or small frame package. The frame packages are specifically designed to reduce size and weight and operate at up to 85degC. Dual wavelength packages have applications in sensing, industrial and biomedical equipment.

ProPhotonix, headquartered in Salem, New Hampshire,USA, is an independent designer and manufacturer of diode-based laser modules and LED systems for OEMs and medical equipment companies
