Intense extends 808nm pump module range to 30W for defense, medical & industrial applications

At the SPIE Photonics West event in San Francisco (24–26 January), Intense Inc of North Brunswick, NJ, USA (which makes monolithic laser array products, high-power single-emitter laser diodes, and electro-optical subsystems) has launched a 30W version of its Series 8000 808nm high-power laser pump modules.

The new multi-emitter pump module delivers 30W of output power from a 200µm-core fiber with a numerical aperture (NA) of 0.15 or 0.22. Intense says that the lasers compact size and combination of efficiency and high brightness make it a high-performance pumping alternative to meet the growing demand for fiber and solid-state laser systems used in defense, medical, and industrial applications.

The Series 8000 808nm fiber-coupled packages provide robust, cost-effective, and compact solutions for applications with power requirements up to 30W, the firm claims.

With this launch, the high-power chip technology of the Series 8000 808nm is now available for a range of power levels, from fiber-coupled single emitters at 6W, to multi-emitter, high-power, high-brightness, fiber-coupled modules at 30W.

“The new compact 30W module was introduced to serve a growing number of defense and industrial customers who were using our 793 and 808nm mini fiber packages,” says CEO Kevin Laughlin. “The 30W 808nm was introduced as a compact, high-efficiency and high-brightness pumping alternative for fiber and solid-state laser systems,” he adds. “Intense’s family of Series 8000 QWI-enabled pumping modules has continued to evolve. It now includes 808nm and 793nm offerings. In 2012, these will serve as the cornerstone for a much expanded product line.”

The entire Series 8000 family of laser pump products is based on Intense’s next generation of single- and multi-emitter chips that incorporate narrow beam divergence and Intense’s patented quantum well intermixing (QWI) technology to maximize power, brightness, and reliability.

The 808nm fiber-coupled packages come standard with 200µm x 0.22NA fibers; 0.15NA fiber options are available on request. The 808nm chip technology is offered in a variety of free-space configurations with FAC options.

The 30W multi-emitter pump modules are available in custom packaging to match OEM system requirements. OEM discounts are based on quantities ordered.
