II-VI Suwtech Pump Lasers Enable Ultrafast Fibre Lasers
High output power achieved by combining multiple GaAs semiconductor laser chips into one module
The II-VI Suwtech division of II"VI has announced the introduction of 976 nm wavelength-stabilized multimode pump laser modules with up to 20 Watts of output power.
Medical, industrial and semiconductor manufacturing applications increasingly employ ultrafast pulsed lasers for precision drilling and marking on a microscopic scale. II-VI Suwtech's new pump lasers feature a wavelength-stabilized optical design that, the company says, can significantly extend their output power stability performance over operating temperature and output power dynamic ranges. These pump lasers enable ultrafast fibre lasers to operate with shorter pulses and achieve higher precision drilling and marking. The new wavelength-stabilized optical system also minimizes warm up time which improves the productivity of the fibre lasers.
"This new laser module builds on the proven reliability of II-VI's gallium arsenide technology platform," said Di Yang, General Manager, II-VI Suwtech. "Beyond ultrafast fibre-lasers for precision drilling and marking, our product portfolio will expand to advance pulsed lasers for other applications including supercontinuum lasers for life sciences."
The high output power of the new pump laser is achieved by combining multiple GaAs semiconductor laser chips into one module. The combined output power is coupled to an industry standard 105 Î¼m multi mode fibre. The operating wavelength can be adjusted to meet specific customer applications.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
