Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) May 7, 2008
nLIGHT has extended the performance of its high-power long wavelength semiconductor laser diodes ranging from 1.4 to 2.1 microns. Industry-leading power and efficiency over this wavelength range enables medical, defense, and material processing applications.
At 1.9 microns, the Pearl™ fiber-coupled module provides up to 20 watts output power from a single 400 micron 0.22NA fiber with >10% wall-plug efficiency. Single-emitter chips produce up to 1.5 watts rated power on expansion matched substrates.
At 1.4 and 1.5 microns, the Pearl™ module produces up to 40 watts from a single 400 micron 0.22NA fiber and >30% wall-plug efficiency. Single-emitter chips produce up to 3 watts rated power on expansion matched substrates.
