Oclaro Showcases Expanded, Innovative Laser Diode Portfolio at LASER World of PHOTONICS 2013 Product lineup includes next generation 80 W fiber laser pump, state-of-the-art 150ps DFB seed laser, high performance diode bars at 10xx and 14xx nm and higher power 63x red diode lasers in a smaller package
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), a tier-one provider and innovator of optical communications and laser solutions, today announced that it will be showcasing several new, innovative laser diode products for fiber laser, direct diode, medical and consumer applications at the LASER World of PHOTONICS conference starting today in Munich.
Leveraging the newest generation 9xx chip design, the BMU80 fiber-coupled, single-emitter module delivers 80 W power in a 105um fiber, enabling fiber laser manufacturers to reduce system complexity and achieve higher power with fewer modules. The 106x nm DFB seed laser, capable of 800mW peak power at 150ps pulses and 150kHz line-width in CW mode, enables short pulse lasers for materials processing applications with improved precision and reduced thermal effects.
Oclaro is also expanding their high power laser diode portfolio to include 10xx and 14xx nm wavelengths. Highly reliable 10xx bars enable multi-Kw direct diode systems through wavelength multiplexing with the 9xx wavelengths. The new family of 14xx nm bar and single emitter products can be used for medical, cosmetics and industrial applications.
The new additions to the visible laser diode family are 100 mW, 633 nm and 150 mW, 638 nm laser diodes. The 633 nm laser diode offers a compact, high efficiency alternative to the existing bulky He-Ne gas lasers and enables system designers to achieve measurement accuracy, stability and speed which are essential for biomedical and inspection applications. The 638 nm laser diode delivers 25% more output power from its predecessor in a more compact 3.8mm package, ideal for the growing mobile display market.
Additional products on display at the LASER World Munich show will include Oclaro fiber-coupled bar products for DPSS pumping, stacks for medical and materials processing applications, visible diodes for medical, measurement and display, and high power VCSEL arrays for sensing and thermal applications. Oclaro will also showcase the integration capability of VCSEL arrays on a microchannel cooler.
"With a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for direct diode applications that deliver industry-leading innovation, quality and brightness, Oclaro customers can address their most challenging product performance needs," said Yves LeMaitre, Chief Commercial Officer for Oclaro, Inc.
