II-VI Inc wins Strategic Supplier Award from Xinghan
Engineered materials and optoelectronic component maker II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA, which makes high-power semiconductor lasers, has won the Strategic Supplier Award from Shenzhen Xinghan Laser Technology Co Ltd in recognition of its “outstanding performance” as a supplier of high-power laser diode chips for Xinghan’s fiber-coupled pump laser modules. The presentation took place at LASER World of Photonics China 2020 in Shanghai (3-5 July).
“II-VI continues to be a strategic supplier of high-power laser diode chips with a strong record of technical innovation, quality and delivery performance,” comments Xinghan’s CEO & president Shaofeng Zhou. “We look forward to growing our relationship with II-VI by leveraging its portfolio of high-power laser components, one of the most complete in the industry,” he adds.
“Xinghan’s award is an honor and a strong recognition of II-VI’s ability to deliver high-power semiconductor laser chips with high quality and at scale,” says Dr Karlheinz Gulden, senior VP, Laser Devices and Systems business unit. “II-VI’s laser diodes’ output power is market-leading and enables industrial laser designs with fewer pump modules, which lowers the cost of cutting, welding, brazing and laser additive manufacturing,” he claims.
