Intense Ltd. Announces High Power, High Brightness 808 nm Single Mode Diodes for Solid State Laser Pumping
Glasgow, Scotland -- 12 May 2008 -- Intense Ltd., developer of next generation lasers, announced the Series 6020-808, high power, high brightness, 808 nm single mode laser diodes for green laser pumping. The Series 6020-808 are high beam quality, single mode lasers with up to 200 mW of output power; they provide high brightness with low astigmatism and a Gaussian far field. Designed for pumping solid state laser sources, the new diodes allow OEMs to directly couple the output of the diode to the crystal. The Series 6020-808 lasers can be used as in a variety of solid state pumping applications, including Vanadate, YLF, and NdYag.
Part of Intense's Series 6000 family of single mode lasers, the Series 6020-808 are based on the company's patented Quantum Well Intermixing (QWI) technology, which increases the brightness and reliability of laser diodes while avoiding the usual problems associated with catastrophic optical mirror damage. The diodes offer high electrical conversion efficiency in a range of operating temperatures, from 25 to 50 degrees C. The lasers are available in a selection of free space packages, including 9 mm, C-mount, and TO3. Custom packaging and wavelengths are available on request.
"The Series 6020-808 single mode laser pumps provide OEMs with the optical tools they need to develop products with lower costs, higher efficiencies, and longer lifetimes," stated Kevin Laughlin, VP HPL Global Business Development at Intense Ltd. "The Series 6020 allows OEMs to design products with powerful yet significantly less complex optical systems. Reduced component counts mean lower system costs. These QWI enabled Series 6020 also provide higher conversion efficiencies and longer lifetimes, especially when compared to higher power multimode devices."
The high power, efficiency, and operating temperatures of the Series 6020-808 diodes have attracted a high level of interest from solid state laser source producers, most recently from those pumping Vanadate. Vanadate is used to design green lasers, a key component in the manufacture of RGB display sources, handheld picoprojectors, scientific instruments, including interferometers, and precision machining. Diode-pumped green lasers are also used for targeting in defense applications and for spectroscopic applications in the medical field.
The Series 6020-808 single mode laser diodes are also available in custom packaging to match OEM system requirements. OEM discounts are based on quantities ordered.
Headquartered in Glasgow, UK, Intense is a leading provider of single and multimode monolithic laser array products and high power laser diodes. The company's patented innovations in Quantum Well Intermixing (QWI) and Asymmetric Waveguides (AW) generate uniquely high power, brightness, and reliability. Combined with state-of-the-art, high volume manufacturing facilities in the UK and US, this delivers unsurpassed product quality and value to customers in the print and imaging, defense, industrial, display, and medical markets.
