EXALOS releases NEW Ultrabroadband Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes for Medical Imaging and Sensor applications
EXALOS has expanded its portfolio of Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) by introducing our new near-IR Combi-SLED modules where multiple SLED devices are spectrally combined to provide an ultra-broadband spectrum. The light output of the SLEDs are collimated using micro-optical collimation lenses, spectrally combined and colinearly aligned through free-space dielectric edge filters and focused into a single-mode fiber.
The Combi-SLEDs are especially suited for medical imaging applications such as ultra-high-resolution Optical Coherence Tomography (UHR-OCT) and Fiber Optic Sensor applications thanks to their high output power. large spectral bandwidth and short coherence length. The first product release of such a Combi-SLED will be an 840-nm source with a 3-dB bandwidth of 140 nm, which can provide an axial resolution of 2.1 µm in tissue. The modules are delivered in a 14-pin Butterfly housing with a monitor photodiode and an FC/APC connector. All devices are based on EXALOS’ Telcordia-qualified hybrid optical packing platform. These Combi-SLEDs are currently available for delivery.
EXALOS will be exhibiting these Combi-SLED devices at BIOS and PW in San Francisco February 2nd to February 7th. Please stop by our booth at either BioS (8367) or Photonics West (367) to discuss how these sources can benefit your applications and learn more about our other products.
