QPC Lasers Introduces Lastest High Power Laser Offering Increased Power and Brightness

QPC Lasers, Inc., announced today release of the Ultra-500™, a new product family based on its proprietary semiconductor laser chip technology that offers increased power and industry leading brightness for medical surgical, high power defense, and industrial micro-welding applications. The Company has won multiple orders for the new product and recently shipped initial units to customers.

"We have seen strong market demand for the Ultra-500™ in both the near-infrared and eye-safe wavelength regime, and have received multiple orders from both US and international customers," stated Paul Rudy, Ph.D., vice president of marketing and sales for QPC. "The Ultra-500™ expands our high brightness laser product line to offer more than 400 Watts from a compact module, and addresses numerous power-hungry applications in the industrial, defense, and medical surgical markets. Shipment of BrightLock™ Ultra-500™ lasers began last month to defense customers, and shipment of BrightLase® Ultra-500™ commenced earlier this month to medical customers," he concluded.

The Ultra-500™ laser family offers high power delivered in a narrow core diameter fiber at application specific wavelengths with several compelling advantages over traditional laser gas, solid state, or fiber laser technology. For medical customers, the BrightLase® Ultra-500™ features a compact, easy-to-use and cost-effective source for all-important eye-safe wavelengths targeting high water absorption peaks for precise surgical applications such as cancerous tumor treatment, benign prostrate hyperplasia, and emerging applications in cardiology.

For industrial customers, the BrightLase® Ultra-500™ provides over 400 Watts at near infrared wavelengths from an energy-efficient, reliable and cost-effective package critical for laser micro-welding, engraving and marking applications. For defense customers, the BrightLock™ Ultra-500™ is a high performance laser pump engine, featuring up to 180 Watts in a compact, lightweight footprint with a narrow stable emission spectrum designed for solid state and fiber laser systems.

The BrightLase® Ultra-500™ Lasers deliver up to 425 Watts from 200, 400, and 800 micron fibers and are available at wavelengths including 792, 808, 976, 1064, 1320, and 1470 nm. BrightLock™ Ultra-500™ Lasers deliver up to 180 Watts and feature on-chip internal grating wavelength stabilization at 976 and 1532 nm from a 200 and 400 micron fiber.

The Ultra-500™ is the highest power product in QPC's Ultra™ product line that features QPC's BrightLase® and BrightLock™ proprietary advanced semiconductor laser technologies to uniquely deliver a high brightness laser beam from a compact, efficient, conduction cooled, rugged source available over a broad wavelength range. The Ultra-100™ was announced earlier this year and offers power up to 110 Watts from 792 to 1470 nm from a 100, 200, or 400 micron core diameter fiber. The Ultra-50™ was announced in 2006 and offers power up to 35 Watts from 792 to 1532 nm from a 100, 200 or 400 micron fiber.
