Ushio wins prestigious LASER World of PHOTONICS 2023 Innovation Award


Ushio Inc. is proud to announce that it has won the esteemed LASER World of PHOTONICS 2023 Innovation Award. This global recognition reinforces Ushio’s standing as an industry pioneer in photonics and quantum technology solutions.

The award-winning technology, revealed by Ushio’s engineering team, features single-mode, continuous wave (CW) 200mW red laser diodes, with 5nm wavelength increments, ranging from 660nm to 705nm. These laser diodes are the first to achieve reliable continuous operation in this wavelength range, representing a significant advancement in the industry.

In addition to their unprecedented performance, these laser diodes boast high wall plug efficiency, (>30%), and excellent temperature characteristics, making them an ideal solution for sensing, biomedical, and quantum technology applications.

Moreover, these single-mode laser diodes’ wavelengths can be adjusted by controlling temperature, making them perfect for applications where a specific wavelength is required. Furthermore, their market standard TO-CAN packaging offers lower costs and enables a smaller system footprint.

With the high performance and wide wavelength range from 660nm to 705nm, they will contribute to further technological innovations in the fields of optical lattice clocks that deviate by only one second in 30 billion years, genome analysis with quantum computers, and pharmaceutical design.

get specs for the award-winning laser diodes:



Ushio’s laser diode collection offers wavelengths across UV (375–405 nm), red (630–690 nm), and NIR (705–852 nm), with prospective optical output powers from 5 mW to 3,500 mW. Our LD collection has low and high power lasers, with low-operating currents, long lifespans, and efficiency, all while remaining 100% RoHS-compliant.

Ushio’s Epitex division has grown into the largest collection of light emitting diodes on the market. Covering all violet, visible, and infrared wavelengths, from 365 nanometres (nm) to 1,750 nm, this vast catalogue creates a one-stop-shop for single and multi-wavelength LEDs.
