Excelitas Technologies to Present and Display Expanding Photonics Product Portfolio at SPIE BiOS



WHO:  Excelitas Technologies® Corp., a global technology leader delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, will showcase its expanding portfolio of high-performance photonic solutions at SPIE BiOS, including products made available through the acquisition of Axsun Technologies. Excelitas will also host live demonstrations of the Axsun SS-OCT Laser and Integrated Engine products and present several BiOS technical presentations.

WHAT:  Featured new products at Excelitas booth #8179 include

  • iFLEX-iRIS CLM Lasers: The iFLEX-iRIS laser series includes a range of solid-state, high-performance lasers with low amplitude noise, ideally suited for integration into instruments that demand high performance, yet need to retain a small form factor. The innovative Closed Loop Modulation (CLM) feature allows the lasers to operate with automatic power control feedback in all modes of operation; CW, plus digital, analogue and dual-mode modulation. Unlike traditional open-loop laser modulation, there is no need for calibration reset when using iFLEX-iRIS lasers with CLM feature.
  • New Axsun 1060nm High-Speed Tunable VCSEL: The new Axsun VCSEL laser architecture enables higher sweep rates, longer coherence length, bidirectional tuning, and single-mode operation in several convenient form factors and with a variety of peripheral SS-OCT system component options.
  • Axsun Wideband Swept Laser Engines: Ideal for SS-OCT customers requiring the highest axial resolution, the Axsun Wideband Swept Laser Engine achieves tuning ranges beyond 140 nm for both our 1310 and 1060 nm laser platforms.
