Laser diodes have become indispensable in many industries. They have led to new and exciting applications and technologies, including facial and gesture recognition in consumer electronics, LiDAR (light detection and ranging) in cars, and material processing using high-performance diode lasers. VCSELs (vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers) are replacing EELs (edge-emitting lasers) within these new applications and technologies. Instrument Systems, a division of Konica Minolta Sensing, characterizes VCSEL arrays, including polarization analysis.

A question asked by many is, how to measure VCSEL arrays? By measuring VCSEL single emitters and arrays in the near and far-field, one can characterize VCSEL pulses, spectra, power and now even polarization. However, measuring systems for laser diodes must satisfy particular requirements. Learn more about these requirements and the challenges of spectral measurement of laser diodes with a defined error budget and traceability by visiting our VCSEL industry page.

VCSEL Portfolio

Experience Instrument Systems' interactive VCSEL portfolio video! 3D sensor technology has developed into a ‘game-changer’ for smart products using vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) as efficient light sources. VCSEL-based sensor technology supports applications such as AI, internet-of-things (IoT) and AR/VR technologies; it also simplifies the integration of smart systems into our everyday chores. However, because VCSELs have special properties, their characterization is more complex than that of other typical laser sources. Watch an interactive VCSEL video highlighting Instrument Systems GmbH's portfolio of VCSEL instruments.

Advanced Calibration
from UVC to IR

Using LED calibration standards, the ACS-570 series are available in several models from UV-C to IR and are calibrated to luminous flux and luminous intensity or averaged LED intensity.
An all-in-one system for determining the radiant flux of UV-LEDs in the lab comprises a combination of the well-proven Instrument Systems spectroradiometers, such as the CAS series, with integrating spheres made from PTFE facilitate high sensitivity measurements of UV radiant flux. All Instrument Systems UV measurement solutions with PTFE integrating spheres are delivered with a PTB traceable calibration.
