Oclaro showcases expanded product portfolio that now includes violet, visible and near-infrared laser diodes
At next week's Photonics West Conference (5 – 7 February) in San Francisco, optical components, modules and subsystems developer Oclaro of San Jose, CA, USA will be showcasing an expanded portfolio of laser diodes that now includes violet, visible and near-infrared lasers that deliver industry-leading innovation, quality and brightness.
"By offering one of the industry's most expansive portfolios of laser diode solutions, Oclaro can provide customers with a single-source partner that lowers risks, speeds time to market and reduces development costs," said Yves LeMaitre, chief commercial officer at Oclaro. "The combination of violet and visible lasers with our existing infrared high power diode lasers strengthens our portfolio for many applications in the material processing, medical, aesthetics and printing markets. This also enables our customers in the consumer market to leverage our product leadership, economies of scale, vertical integration and technology expertise."
Oclaro will also be announcing new technological advancements at Photonics West that improve the performance and packaging for its laser diodes currently used in laser multi-function printers. The firm will also present four technical papers at the event that have been authored or co-authored by Oclaro representatives: Optimization of fiber coupling in ultra-high power pump modules at 980nm Wavelength; Next generation 9xx/10xx nm high power laser diode bars for multi-kilowatt industrial applications; Integrated InP based mode-locked lasers and pulse shapers; and High-quality surface micromachining of LiNbO3 by ion implantation-assisted etching.
Other Oclaro products on display will include a newly qualified 14G VCSEL array for high speed optical interconnects used in mobile, home, enterprise and data centers applications; red laser diodes for display applications; and various advanced high power laser diode products.
