JDSU, Amada to Develop More kW Fiber Lasers

Photonics.com
Mar 2011
MILPITAS, Calif., March 31, 2011 — JDSU and Amada have announced plans to jointly develop a second-generation suite of fiber lasers with up to 4 kW of output power. The lasers will be used in the latter’s high-power laser materials processing system.

JDSU’s collaboration with Amada, a manufacturer of machine tools for metal fabrication, builds on the companies’ partnership for the first-generation laser, which is currently being launched. The next-generation laser focuses on improved cost, reduced size and enhanced beam quality.

JDSU’s fiber optic technology was integrated into Amada’s sheet metal cutting system. The laser can cut through highly reflective metals, including titanium, brass and copper, offering the flexibility required to cut different and very precise shapes with the system’s settings.

GLOSSARY
fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
