II-VI Laser Enterprise Introduces new High Power Laser Diode Modules

Portfolio includes tap water cooled stacks for medical, pumping and defence applications

II-VI Laser Enterprise, a German developer of semiconductor lasers, will debut its new expanded portfolio of high power multi-bar stack laser diode modules at Laser World of Photonics 2015 in Munich, Germany.

This includes a new series of tap water cooled stacks for medical, pumping and defence applications, showcasing what are claimed to be the industry's broadest wavelength range of high-power, high-brightness laser diodes enabling multi-kilowatt direct diode systems.

The tap water stack is a new QCW-style high reliability stack platform targeting high peak power and pulsed applications especially for the medical and defense markets.

Key advantages are the use of industrial water instead of de-ionized water and the hard solder technology for die bonding. The use of industrial tap water not only reduces complexity of design for the cooling circuit; it eliminates the de-ionizer cartridge, as well as water resistivity and pH control which otherwise is required. By employing hard solder die bonding technology, this product is especially suitable for long-pulse on/off operation modes in the millisecond regime and not only microsecond operation.

 II-VI Laser Enterprise's high power laser diodes offer a wavelength range from 910 nm to 1070 nm, and are shipping in volume today to laser system manufacturers supplying the industrial, semiconductor, automotive, and materials processing markets.

In 2013, II-VI acquired the manufacturing site of GaAs semiconductor diodes in Zurich, Switzerland, and the associated product portfolios from Oclaro. The business unit previously known as Oclaro Switzerland GmbH was renamed II-VI Laser Enterprise GmbH.
