Alfalight has released a series of highly efficient, 976nm, 10W pump laser diodes, available in compact uncooled six pin packages.
The AM6-976E series provides 10W of 976nm light output and is available now via Pacer with high brightness 105µm, 0.15 or 0.22 NA fibre. The main applications are pulsed fibre lasers and fibre amplifier systems.
The new higher output diode includes a thermistor for temperature monitoring, supporting precision wavelength control at 976nm. It is available in a compact six pin Telcordia-qualified, fully hermetic housing and has an expected mean time to failure exceeding 100,000 hours.
