II-VI Laser Enterprise GmbH, a subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated and a global leader in semiconductor lasers, will debut new products from its High Power Laser Diode and VCSEL portfolio at Photonics West 2014 for consumer, fiber laser, and medical applications. These include 25G VCSEL Chips, High Power VCSEL arrays, 14xx nm and 10xx nm High Power Stacks, and expansion of industry-standard multi single-emitter fiber laser pumps to 793 nm wavelengths for Thulium pumping.
II-VI Laser Enterprise's laser diode portfolio will be on display at the Photonics West Conference in booth # 2136 from Feb. 4-6, 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
High speed multimode 850 nm VCSELs target next generation optical interconnects and enable new applications which require increased data rates of 25 Gb/s per channel. The addition of high power VCSELs complements its innovative product portfolio geared at high volume sensing and illumination applications in consumer electronics markets. Arranged in a 2D array, the High Power VCSEL can reach up to 2W optical power for illumination of larger volumes required in sensing applications such as time-of-flight.
The expansion of the BMU fiber-coupled multi single-emitter platform capability to 793nm wavelength range targets the Thulium fiber laser market, an area of increasing focus in industrial, medical and scientific applications. More than 25W from 105um fiber with wall-plug efficiency of up to 50% has been demonstrated from this high brightness fiber-coupled module at 793nm, making it ideal for pumping Thulium-doped fiber lasers and amplifiers as well as a host of emerging medical applications.
The expanded Seed Laser portfolio includes a new Fabry Perot (FP) laser diode module with ultra-broad band fiber Bragg grating (FBG) for high peak power pulsed Fiber Lasers and a Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser diode module designed for seeding of sub-nanosecond Fiber and Solid State lasers.
Other products on display at Photonics West will include the new family of 14xx nm and 10xx nm Stacks delivering higher power with industry-leading efficiency to further expand the application space in medical and industrial markets.
"With its strong heritage of over 30 years in semiconductor laser technology, II-VI Laser Enterprise once again manifests its position as global leader and innovator in semiconductor lasers," said Director Sales & Marketing, Gunnar Stolze.
