On June 06th, 2019, II‐VI Incorporated, a pioneer in high-power laser modules, announced that it has launched its 976-nm pump laser modules with up to 120 W of wavelength-stabilized output power.
Wavelength-stabilized pump laser modules allow ultrafast fiber lasers to work with extremely short pulses for high-precision drilling and marking. II-VI’s pump laser modules attain 120 W of output power while accurately maintaining a wavelength of 976 nm over a broad operating temperature range.
Thanks to their high power, fiber lasers can be developed with fewer pump laser modules, thereby decreasing laser system cost. Their accurate wavelength stability reduces the warm-up time and maintenance of laser systems, thereby enhancing productivity.
This wavelength-stabilized module achieves 50% more output power than that which we introduced only four months ago, demonstrating our rapid technology advances and leadership in the market. Our vertically integrated modules leverage both the reliability of our gallium arsenide semiconductor laser platform and our state-of-the-art spatial beam combining technology to achieve high efficiency and wavelength-stabilized output powers over an industry-leading operating temperature range of 20 to 45 degrees Celsius.

II-VI’s wavelength-stabilized pump laser modules come in an extensive range of power levels from 15 to 120 W in compliance with the industry-standard 106.5 µm core fiber. II-VI’s extensive selection of components for fiber lasers comprises of acousto-optic modulators, seed lasers, fiber laser combiners, and pump, as well as micro-optics for high power isolators.
