MILPITAS, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumentum Holdings Inc. ("Lumentum") today announced that it will present a collection of innovative photonic-based products for a wide range of applications in 3D sensing and advanced manufacturing markets including – VCSELs, edge-emitting DFBs, kW fiber, pump, and diode lasers at SPIE Photonics West 2019 held in San Francisco, Calif., from February 5 – 7, 2019 at Moscone Center in the South Hall in booth #1123.
"Across-the-board 3D sensing technology is becoming more pervasive in end-user applications from gaming to current-day automotive, 3D scanning, and facial recognition for mobile devices," said, vice president, product line management, 3D sensing, Dr. Andre Wong.
Lumentum supports the next wave of 3D sensing applications with an expansive portfolio of historically reliable and high-performing VCSELs and diode laser solutions. "Lumentum is at the forefront, meeting market demands with consistency, the ability to scale with more than 300 million laser diode chips operating, and reliability verified by a field failure rate of less than one part per million," said Wong.
Again this year, Lumentum will showcase several 3D sensing demos and provide information on consumer applications incorporating solutions from co-development partners. Lumentum continues to be engaged at the forefront of the market and is driving an ecosystem of advanced solutions.
Orbbec has developed Astra, a powerful and exceptionally compact series of standalone 3D sensing cameras that employs VCSELs from a partnership with Lumentum, optimized for a variety of uses including 3D scanning, face recognition, and interactive systems.
At last year's conference, Occipital and Lumentum partnered to showcase the Structure Sensor, a mobile 3D sensor used on tablets and mobile devices for 3D scanning and mapping. Occipital's newest product, Structure Core, is a next-gen 3D sensor that incorporates a Lumentum diode laser as part of a sensor package that enables self-contained spatial perception. Structure Core's compact design makes it ideal for augmented reality, 3D mapping, robotics and other applications where high-performance depth matters.
