Oclaro To Showcase Expanded Laser Diode Portfolio

The lineup includes an 80 W fibre laser pump, an 150ps DFB seed laser, high performance diode bars at 10xx and 14xx nm and higher power 63x red diode lasers in a smaller package
Oclaro  showcased several new, innovative laser diode products for fibre laser, direct diode, medical and consumer applications at the LASER World of PHOTONICS conference in Munich.

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

The 1060 nm DFB seed laser, capable of 800mW peak power at 150 ps pulses and 150 kHz 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 percent 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," says Yves LeMaitre, Chief Commercial Officer for Oclaro, Inc.

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 Track!

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.
