The LightHUB Ultra® laser light engine can be equipped with one to seven laser modules of different wavelengths from UV to the near IR range and offer fast analogue intensity modulation of up to 1.5MHz and digital full ON/OFF modulation with a switching time of <1µs for each channel. The individual laser modules can easily be exchanged and added by the user. Hence the systems can be adapted to changing application requirements and are future-proof. With direct and active temperature control of the laser modules and the complete laser bed it is possible to keep the power level ultra-stable. This feature guarantees reliable and repeatable results in the user’s application. The light of the various lasers is combined and coupled efficiently into one or two polarization maintaining single-mode broadband or multimode fibres. The LightHUB Ultra offers the possibility to integrate a fast fibre-switch or a fibre splitter with defined splitting ratio.
Laser modules with up to 300 milliwatt of optical output power and wavelengths between 375 and 1550nm can be used in the “LightHUB” systems. Optional clean-up filters and a fail safe laser safety shutter can be directly installed in the system to adapt the “LightHUB” system to the customer’s application and safety requirements. High-impedance modulation inputs ensure easy interfacing to external devices like cameras, microscopes or DAC cards. The device can be conveniently controlled via the integrated USB-2.0 interface by the included software “Omicron Control Center” or third party software.

Each LightHUB Ultra laser light engine is delivered with the Omicron Control Center (OCC) – Laser Control Software. The software can control multiple lasers and offers a Master section which controls all lasers in parallel. The OCC can be used for daily use or just for configuring the laser for computer independent operation once.
