BAL-980 laser diode

Share this on social media:

Eagleyard Photonics has produced a cost-efficient single-emitter laser diode with an optical output power up to 18 Watt.

Some surgical and diagnostic treatments are nowadays unthinkable without the use of laser technology and Eagleyard Photonics produces the core of such a medical laser – the laser diode.

The high efficiency of the BAL-980 laser diode makes it suitable not only for medical purposes but also for high-end applications in industry and aeronautics.

Product features allowing easy fibre-coupling and robust handling include:

  • high output power up to 18W;
  • integrated lenses;
  • high efficiency (0.9W/A);
  • compact design (25 x 25 x 12mm);
  • lightweight (30g).
