Laser Components has introduced an 808nm diode laser which utilises the multi-emitter pump platform to achieve 35W and 60W output power from 105um fibre, and 100W output from 200um fibre. This increase in power was accomplished via spatial and polarisation-beam combination schemes combined with optimised beam shaping. The compact package and low thermal load ensures easy integration into a wide variety of applications.
High power laser diodes have been continuously increasing in power and brightness in response to the demand from the medical and material processing industries where power, brightness, reliability and price are among the main criteria. The 808nm pump diode is no exception and has long been used for Nd:YAG diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers. Other wavelengths are available including 405nm, 450nm, 520nm, 6xxnm, 793nm, 808nm, 830nm, 915nm, 940nm, 965nm, 976nm and 1064nm.
