488L-1XA – 488nm Laser Diode Module

The 488L-1XA is a 488 nm low noise diode laser from Integrated Optics. The IO Matchbox series includes single mode laser diode modules offering excellent performance and reliability in an ultra-compact “all-in-one” driver integrated laser head.  The 488L-1XA comes standard with internal voltage up-conversion that allows using a 5V power supply while maintaining low noise operation. The monolithic design of the Matchbox Series laser diode modules includes thermally stabilized optics in a hermetically sealed housing ensuring reliable and maintenance-free operation.  All the Matchbox series modules include a 12-month warranty and are RoHS compliant.

These features make the 488L-1XA the ideal source for applications like confocal fluorescence microscopy, DNA sequencing, and flow cytometry.  See our Applications for Lasers page for a complete list of applications.

The 488L-11A is the free space version, other versions are available depending on the variable X in Part number. Here are the free space and fiber coupled output types available for the 488L-1XA:  (“X” defines the output type of the module)
