Sensing Components

Finisar's Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) technology is extending the possibilities of consumer and scientific applications including 3D facial recognition, automotive in-cabin sensing and automotive LIDAR.  Known to have the best reliability and best performance over temperature in the industry, Finisar’s VCSEL technology is both flexible and scalable, enabling OEMs to customize VCSEL arrays to meet application requirements, such as those found in Gesture Recognition and Optical Sensing.

Diffractive Optical Elements (DOE) offer powerful beam shaping and beam splitting capabilities. They are complimentary to Finisar VCSELs and can be used to produce diffusers for Time-of-Flight 3D sensing and 2D illumination, structured light sources for 3D sensing, and complex high efficiency flat lenses or holograms. Finisar DOEs are etched directly into the substrate and contain no organic materials, ensuring superior reliability and environmental stability.
