iFLEX-iRIS Compact Diode & DPSS Laser Series

Rising from our Qioptiq photonics heritage, our iFLEX-iRIS Lasers represent a compact, high-performance, laser illumination source delivering exceptional power stablility and low amplitude noise for high-resolution bio-imaging, ophthalmology and metrology applications. iFLEX-iRIS Lasers feature on-board Closed-Loop Modulation and are available in wavelengths from 375-852nm at power levels up to 200mW. They are ideal for both free-space use or with our kineFLEX® polarization-maintaining fiber-delivery system.

Ultra-Stable Closed-Loop Modulation

iFLEX-iRIS comes standard with Closed-Loop Modultion (CLM) for further performance stability with very low periodic noise. CLM allows iFLEX lasers to operate with automatic power control feedback in all modes of operation; CW, digital-, analogue- and dual-mode modulation. iFLEX CLM maintains reliable power stability from 0.1–100% throughout the extended service life.

For Free-Space or Flexible Fiber-optic Delivery

Our modular kineFLEX single-mode, polarization-maintaining fiber optic delivery system option allows iFLEX-iRIS to be located remotely from the sample, in an easily accessible, safe location. The kineFLEX fiber delivery system provides additional spatial filtering of the laser output for almost perfect Gaussian beam quality. Now you can replace the laser source without time-consuming repositioning and alignment to the subject.
