Lumentum showcases new technologies and products at Laser World of Photonics
In stand #320 (hall A2) at Laser World of Photonics 2017 in Munich, Germany (26-29 June), optical and photonic optical component and subsystem maker Lumentum Holdings Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA is showcasing its latest products addressing the industrial diode laser, commercial laser, and 3D sensing markets.
On hand is the new-generation CORELIGHT Series of kilowatt-class fiber-laser engines as well as the ST2 200W fiber-coupled diode pump laser module, the PicoBlade 2 ultrafast laser, the Q-Series diode-pumped UV lasers, and 3D sensing and industrial diode laser displays.
Launched in early February at SPIE Photonics West 2017 in San Francisco, the ST2 is now in full production. Fiber-coupled pump laser modules are a main component in applications such as pump sources for rod, fiber and disk lasers. The ST2 is part of the ultra-compact and high-brightness ST series, which enables a ‘build-your-own’ kilowatt (kW) laser. The ST series leverages a history of using fiber-coupled device packages such as the L4, incorporating a highly reliable design in a scalable commercial product. The ST series undergoes testing for endurance and power stability to withstand prolonged use in manufacturing settings.
CORELIGHT kW-class fiber-laser engines
Highlighted at SPIE Photonics West 2017 and now available in production volumes, the next-generation CORELIGHT YLE fiber-laser engines are cost-effective and highly configurable fiber-laser systems offered in single-module 2kW and 3kW systems and multi-module 4kW, 6kW and 9kW systems. At Laser World of Photonics Munich, Lumentum is showcasing a CORELIGHT YLE 9kW laser system.
The CORELIGHT YLE series fiber-laser systems is said to enable flexibility and peak performance in challenging cutting, welding and material deposition deployments. Users now have additional configuration options to differentiate their latest machine tools. CORELIGHT’s beam characteristics are said to enable high-quality and high-speed cutting performance of steel, copper, brass, aluminum, etc. CORELIGHT products also meet high-reliability standards critical for high-volume macro-machining industrial environments.
Lumentum has a wide range of 3D sensing products to enable next-generation capabilities for diverse consumer electronics and automotive applications. Products include a high-power diode-laser portfolio spanning edge-emitters, fiber-coupled devices and vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs). At Laser World of Photonics, a VCSEL wafer and a light detection and ranging (Lidar) display showcase 3D sensing capabilities.
In the forum on Lasers and Optics on 26 June, Erik Zucker, senior director, Lasers Product & Technology Strategy is presenting on ‘Efficient, robust, reliable – high-power, fiber-coupled laser diode pump source, and application’.
