Oclaro has announced high power laser diodes available over a wavelength range from 800 nm to 1070 nm and are shipping in volume now to laser system manufacturers targeting the industrial, semiconductor, automotive, and materials processing markets.
Within the wavelength range of 910 nm to 1070 nm, Oclaro offers seven standard wavelength windows with up to 200 W on a microchannel cooler and up to 120 W on the industry's standard passive mini-cooler, the Oclaro BLM. Oclaro says this family of mounted bar products enables the scaling of system power up to 15 kW. Oclaro said it has recently demonstrated output powers of up to 350 W on a microchannel cooler and 250 W on a passive mini-cooler which illustrates the technology reach.
"Today's announcement underscores our ability to deliver a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for direct diode applications and highlights the extensive technology and design capabilities we have assembled in-house to achieve industry-leading performance," said Gunnar Stolze, VP of Sales for the Global Industrial and Consumer business at Oclaro, Inc. "By offering the industry's broadest wavelength range while consistently delivering product performance and reliability, our customers have the flexibility to scale system power as needed to better respond to their customer's needs."
