QPC Lasers partners with Cutting Edge Optronics on high-power laser integration

At this week’s Photonics West event in San Jose, CA, USA, Quintessence Photonics Corp of Sylmar, CA, USA is debuting integrated semiconductor laser modules and systems after its parent company, QPC Lasers Inc, partnered with Northrop Grumman Space Technology Cutting Edge Optronics Inc of St Charles, MO, USA on integrating QPC’s high-power lasers.

The lasers include QPC’s proprietary BrightLase and Internal Grating technology and expand its product line to include high-power water-cooled laser modules and turn-key systems.

The high-power water-cooled laser modules feature high spectral brightness and stability for high-efficiency pumping of Er:YAG high-energy lasers at eye-safe wavelengths for directed-energy weapons development.

The fiber-coupled semiconductor laser systems offer a turn-key solution with high spatial and spectral brightness in the near-infrared and eye-safe regime for industrial, medical, and defense markets.
