Miniaturised synthetic green lasers are readily produced using MgO:PPLN via intra-cavity harmonic generation. Providing a high wall-plug efficiency and stable operation to within a few percent, these lasers are key components in the growing laser projector market. Utilising MgO:PPLN, portable (pico) projectors are able to offer a brightness in excess of 50 Lumens under battery operation that can last for over 2 hours.
Our proprietary poling technique enables the engineering of deep and uniform domains throughout the entire crystal. Output powers ranging from 50mW to 3W are easily achieved, with wall-plug efficiencies up to 25%. MgO:PPLN is utilised in many different products such as: pico / micro projectors, head-up-displays, laser TV and cinema. Our production process is able to realise very high yields resulting in low (market-enabling) prices for high-volume OEM supply.
Our guide to PPLN explains the basic theory behind nonlinear processes as well as providing practical information on PPLN usage to help you gain the best efficiency from our crystals.
