Abstract
The application of short wavelength helium cadmium lasers to printing and information processing is discussed. Features of these lasers which make them useful in high resolution systems are examined. Recent technical improvements in stability and noise control are noted. The advent of hard seal tube technology to this laser type is also noted. The rapid emergence of semiconductor diode lasers as viable sources is discussed and the problems relating to the incorporation of diode lasers into systems are addressed. A new turnkey cw diode laser system, the LiCONiX Diolite 800, is reviewed and its applicability to R&D and prototype use is pointed out. Custom laser diode drivers (LDD's) are mentioned and a specific example given. Finally, a laser stabilization accessory, the LiCONiX 50SA, designed for extreme power stability and noise reduction is described.
