Diodes Serve as Building Blocks for Modules, Fiber-Coupled Packages

June 19, 2007 10:26 am | Comments

Blue Sky Research announced CircuLasers, distributed by AMS Technologies. They are produced by mounting the µLens directly in front of the diode chip emitter. This transforms the highly elliptical output beam of a standard laser diode into a circular beam. The lens profile compresses the fast-axis of the beam down to the divergence angle of the slow axis, thus converting the beam's elliptical shape into a very user-friendly, gradually diverging, circular cross section
