BluGlass Limited (ASX:BLG), a global semiconductor developer, has introduced its first suite of gallium nitride (GaN) laser products for customer purchase at the SPIE Photonics West conference in San Francisco. The products, which are available in 405nm, 420nm, and 450nm wavelengths, come in both single-mode and multi-mode devices and are available in a range of form factors including TO Cans of different sizes and Chip-on-Submounts. The products have passed entry-level commercial specifications after undergoing significant product development, optimization, and performance and reliability testing.
The following products are now available for customer purchase:
- Violet 405nm multi-mode 1W laser
- Violet 405nm single-mode 250mW laser
- Violet 420nm multi-mode 1W laser
- Violet 420nm single-mode 250mW laser
- Blue 450nm multi-mode 1W laser
- Blue 450nm single-mode 100mW laser
The company has received interest from customers who want to use the lasers in their product development programs for a variety of applications, such as 3D printing, quantum sensing and computing, material sensing, and flow cytometry.
Commenting on the launch to BluGlass President Jim Haden, said,
“We are delighted to launch our first suite of products at Photonics West. The release of these laser diodes reflects the significant performance and reliability improvements we have made over the past year. The market is telling us there is a growing need for a dedicated GaN laser supplier who can provide greater manufacturing agility and form factor flexibility, to enable manufacturers to expand their product offerings and market applications. We have several potential customers interested in our portfolio, and this significant milestone paves the way for first orders and commercial revenues.
“Our product offering will continue to grow and improve – with expanded wavelengths, higher-power, and novel laser architectures also progressing through the supply chain. We expect the execution of our ongoing vertical integration plans to further improve quality and accelerate development timelines for future products and enable us to scale manufacturing capacity to meet demand.
In addition to the launched products, laser diode designs in other wavelengths and specifications are progressing through BluGlass’ supply chain, including RPCVD-enhanced products.
