OXFORD, Mass., May 3, 2011 — IPG Photonics, a producer of fiber lasers and amplifiers, announced a 95 percent increase in sales in the first quarter of 2011, as compared to a year ago.

The increase puts IPG’s sales at $100 million with a net income of $23.1 million. First-quarter sales in 2010 were at $51.2 million with a net income of $3.4 million. According to the company, the high-power and pulsed laser sales for materials processing applications were the primary drivers of the growth.

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.
