Electrically Pumped Tunable VCSEL, HSL-1

Santec is pleased to introduce the latest addition to our range of tunable lasers for spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography. The HSL-1 is an electrically pumped VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser). The laser has a number of features intrinsic to VCSELs that makes it an attractive source for SS-OCT, including large coherence length, variable scan speed and low signal noise. The HSL-1 has been designed with system integration in mind; a compact, efficient package the laser is also robust, reliable and suitable for mass production.

  • 1060nm wavelength range
  • Single Mode Lasing: Ultra Long Coherence Length
  • Flexible Scanning Rate, Tuning Range, and Direction
  • Coherence Revival and Mode Competition Noise Free

Spatial Light Modulator SLM-100

SLM-100 is based on a reflective LCOS (liquid crystal on silicon) for high resolution applications. The high-definition(HD) resolution, 4 times excellent 10-bit (1024 gray levels) and 10 times better phase stability offers differentiate solutions in various applications.

  • 4x Higher Phase Resolution!
  • 10x Better Phase Stability!
  • 1.5 Mega Pixels!

New! Swept Laser Sensing

Santec`s Scanning Laser System is a sensing system that can measure the optical spectrum with high speed, high accuracy and high resolution. It has a tunable laser with single mode and mode-hop-free wavelength sweeps and fast a scan rate of up to 10Hz. Data acquisition function that can be used for spectral measurement is built-in.

  • Fast scan rate (Up to 10Hz)
  • Single mode and mode-hop-free wavelength sweeps
  • Wide wavelength range over 100nm
  • Optical component characterization
  • Sensing (Gas, FBG)
  • Molecular spectroscopy
