Intense launches high-power, high-brightness diode lasers at Laser World of Photonics

Intense Ltd of North Brunswick, NJ, USA, which makes monolithic laser array products, high-power single-emitter laser diodes, and electro-optical subsystems, is featuring a number of new high power diode laser products at next week’s Laser World of Photonics in Munich, Germany (23–26 May) in IMM Photonics’ booth (number 400, Hall 1).

Among the new technology to be introduced is the Series 8000 793mm Multi-Mode Pump Module. Designed for eye-safe, thulium-doped fiber laser systems, the multi-emitter modules provide up to 20W of output power from a 105µm core fiber.

The firm will also launch the high-brightness Hermes 650W Mini Stack, an ultra-compact quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) stack with an output in excess of 8kW/cm2 operating with ~300µs pulses, and available in 808mm and 940mm wavelengths (with custom wavelengths and multi-color options on request).

The entire Hermes line will be on display at Laser World of Photonics, including QCW bars that provide up to 400W of output power, and QCW 1kW, 2kW, and 3KW stacks with 1kW, 2kW, and 3kW of output power, respectively. All Hermes bars and stacked arrays incorporate Intense’s patented quantum well intermixing (QWI) technology. This increases the brightness and reliability of the lasers while reducing instances of catastrophic optical damage (COMD). The bars and stacks are assembled using AuSn hard solder and designed for a wide range of aerospace, defense and industrial applications.

Also on display will be a variety of new products designed to meet the needs of medical applications. These high-power IR (2–5W) devices are packaged in a modified TO can and incorporate an integrated, single-mode, red pointer diode in the same 9mm housing. Both lasers can be individually addressed or operated in unison. The new laser diodes are available in a wide range of unique, fiber-coupled configurations, from 400–800µm. The robust 9mm housing can be modified with an insert sleeve designed for input of a disposable fiber.
