Previewed at BiOS '11-Part 2

Among the products previewed in the BiOS 2011 exhibits was Oxxius’s 588 nm laser, which provides up to 50 mW of power. This is an upcoming addition to the company’s LaserBoxx laser diode product line that offers wavelengths from the ultraviolet (375 nm) all the way up to 785 nm, and is targeted to biotechnology applications.

Oxxius said that its SLIM DPSS laser line (already released) was getting a lot of attention from BiOS attendees; in particular, the 553 nm wavelength model, with up to 200 mW of power, which the company says is unique in the market. The SLIM light sources are offered in various versions: a plug-and-play version, an OEM version (for system integration), a CDRH-compliant version (for academic users), and "low noise" and "single longitudinal mode" versions.
