Solid-state lidar laser module excels through a compact design
The FocusFlux AL01 lidar laser module from diode laser and micro-optics provider Focuslight Technologies is characterized by a 1.5mJ 3ns laser pulse based on Q-switch technology. The device is designed with special materials and processes to meet automotive grade reliability, production, and quality requirements.

Built-in advanced glass diffusers enable the FocusFlux AL01 to generate a configurable field of view (FOV) of 125x25, 60x45, or customized per request. This allows a large FOV to be captured in one frame in a few nanoseconds and an entire 3D point cloud to be output.

"Designing with mechanical or line scanning lidar can result in time delays and distorted images when performing high-speed object detection," says Kenneth Ferree, VP of Sales and Marketing at Focuslight Technologies. "Flash lidar has become a promising alternative for automotive and industrial applications with unusually large fields of view and shorter detection ranges. The FocusFlux AL01 is designed and qualified for Flash lidar applications, as well as other lidar technologies.” Unlike other 905nm lasers or VCSELs, the FocusFlux AL01 combines high peak power with the ability to output an entire 3D point cloud in one laser flash in a few nanoseconds. Beam shaping by the FocusFlux AL01's built-in diffusers converts the output to eye safe lasers.

The Focuslight FocusFlux AL01 is able to work under high (+80C) and low temperature (-40C), as required by automotive standards. This enables users to comply with automotive requirements at a system level.

Customization and qualification for specific customer application are available upon request. The Focuslight FocusFlux AL01 series lidar laser module is available now.
