Daylight Solutions Grows the Aries™ Line of High-Power, Multi-Wavelength Mid-IR Laser Systems

Dépèche transmise le 25 avril 2011 par Business Wire

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Daylight Solutions, Inc., a leading manufacturer of advanced molecular detection, spectroscopic, and high-power illumination solutions based on quantum cascade and other technologies, announced today the expansion of the Aries™ Series of high-power, multi-wavelength mid-IR lasers. Earlier this year Daylight Solutions introduced the first in the product line, the Aries™-100 air-cooled 2 W laser. The Aries™ commercial product line has now been expanded to include the Aries™-200, -400, and -700 products. The modularity of the Aries™ family of products can now provide the end user with customizable performance in wavelength and power. Our customers can now choose to populate one, two, four, or seven laser “sockets” with any wavelength and power that Daylight offers. Populating all seven sockets in the Aries™-700 can provide over 10 W of cw, air-cooled mid-IR laser power.

“Releasing an additional three models simultaneously for the Aries™ series is a good accomplishment for our team”

“The flexibility and performance of the Aries™ product family is beyond anything available on the market to date,” says Michael Radunsky, Product Marketing Manager for Daylight Solutions’ scientific products. “These turn-key systems can be configured for high power at a single wavelength or to deliver up to seven different wavelengths simultaneously and collinearly.” The Aries™-100 is CDRH approved and is ready for lab use. The higher models in the series are OEM laser systems that are ready for integration. Radunsky continues, “The SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing Symposia and Exhibition is an excellent venue for the announcement of this new product line, as the Aries™ series serves this community well. These lasers are already finding applications in stand-off detection, free space communication, infrared countermeasures, thermal imaging, and scene generation.”

Wavelengths ranging from 2 to 13 µm are available in the Aries™ products. The higher models in the series are also highly ruggedized. Standard performance includes operation within an ambient temperature range of 15 to 40 °C. However, they can also be specified to operate over a much wider range of operating temperatures, ranging from -40 to +70 °C. Aries™ has also been tested for shake and vibration resistance. Optical fiber delivery is also available as an option. “Releasing an additional three models simultaneously for the Aries™ series is a good accomplishment for our team,” states Paul Larson, President of Daylight Solutions. “The flexibility of these models enable applications in multiple markets.” Come see all four of the Aries™ series laser at Defense, Security, and Sensing (booth 3207) in Orlando, FL (26-28 April) and CLEO (booth 1526) in Baltimore, MD (3-5 May).
