Viagra for Laser Diodes... Pangolin's LASORB Component is Making Headlines!

Pangolin Laser Systems, the world's largest producer of laser display software and control hardware, will be showcasing their award-winning LASORB component at this year's SPIE Photonics West Exhibition in San Francisco, California. LASORB has been taking the laser industry by storm, and has recently been featured in major publications including Laser Focus World, NASA Tech Briefs, Photonics Spectra and US-Tech. LASORB is considered by many to be like “Viagara” for laser diodes… It gets them up, and keeps them up longer. LASORB

LASORB is the world's first electronic component designed specifically to protect laser diodes from direct and indirect electrostatic discharge (ESD) and power surges. Developed in 2008 by Pangolin's President and CTO, William Benner, LASORB protects laser diodes, LEDs, and superluminescent diodes from single, multiple, and repeated ESD events of both positive and negative polarity.

Laser diodes are known to fail long before the manufacturers' rated life expectancy, and ESD is a suspected cause in many of the malfunctions. With the global market for laser diodes at around 750 million units per year (Laser Focus World), LASORB has been a cost effective means for many companies, in multiple industries, to protect their laser diodes from ESD and power surges.

Pangolin is producing three separate lines of LASORB, one optimized for red and infrared diodes, one optimized for BLU-RAY diodes, and one optimized for 445nm blue laser diodes. The LASORB website (www.LASORB.com) offers detailed product information and datasheets, and related information on laser diodes and ESD. Videos demonstrating the effects of ESD on laser diodes and the effectiveness of LASORB in protecting them are available at Lasorb.com (http://www.lasorb.com/11_videos.htm) or YouTube: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bvoC81ZsTM) and (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bow7pL4n3Ak).
