SOLE<sup>®</sup> - Compact Laser Light Engines

The SOLE® laser light engines combine up to six wavelengths in a compact and rugged design. Wavelengths between 355nm and 2090nm and optical output powers up to 2500mW per laser line are possible. High-speed analogue and digital modulation as well as fast switching between the individual wavelengths is realized by Omicron´s proprietary DEEPSTAR® technology. All SOLE® light engines offer single-mode polarization maintaining fibre coupling with high stability.
