Oclaro showcases laser diode products at LASER World of PHOTONICS

Optical components, modules and subsystems developer Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA is showcasing several new laser diode products for fiber laser, direct diode, medical and consumer applications at the LASER World of PHOTONICS conference (13-16 May) in Munich, Germany.

Leveraging the newest generation 9xx chip design, the BMU80 fiber-coupled, single-emitter module delivers 80W power in a 105um fiber, enabling fiber laser manufacturers to reduce system complexity and achieve higher power with fewer modules, says the firm. 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 its 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.

Mike Wale, an Oclaro Director of Active Products Research, will present at the CLEO/Europe 2013 Forum which forms part of the LASER World Munich Conference.  Wales' topic will focus on integrated photonic devices in III-V semiconductors for optical communications.  The presentation will occur on 16 May at 15:00 in Room 13a on the first floor of the Congress Centre.
