Diode Laser Module Offers Increased Brightness and High Reliability
Thu, 05/08/2008 - 8:43am
Two fiber coupled diode laser arrays offer substantially higher brightness than previously available from the company, without any sacrifice in reliability or lifetime. Specifically, the FAP 200 delivers either ›50 W at 976 nm or ›30 W at 808 nm from a 200 µm core diameter fiber with a numerical aperture (NA) of 0.22. The FAP 400 provides either ›40 W at 880 nm or ›45 W at 808 nm from a 400 µm core diameter fiber having a 0.22 NA. Both these high brightness fiber coupled diode laser arrays utilize the company’s AAA (aluminum-free active area) technology to achieve industry leading MTTF (mean time to failure) and operating lifetime characteristics.
