Lumics GmbHRequest Info
BERLIN, May 23, 2006 -- Lumics GmbH, a manufacturer of fiber-coupled laser modules, extends its range of pulsed fiber laser units with a 1550 nm version offering up to 30 uJ pulse energy. The LU1550F015 is a short-pulse erbium-ytterbium fiber laser in master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) configuration. The pulse parameters are programmable via a USB computer interface and the laser is controlled by a simple TTL interface. Target applications include lidar (light detection and ranging), medical and scientific systems.

The laser emits in a range from 1540 to 1560 nm wavelength from a single-mode fiber with a very high beam quality, according to Lumics. The fiber is specified at a standard length of 0.7 m terminated with an FC/APC connector. Optional collimator and focuser are available; the key parameters such as the output power, pulse energy, repetition rate and pulse width can be downloaded through a Windows XP software.

According to the company, fiber lasers offer many advantages over conventional laser technology. The high beam quality is delivered in a flexible single-mode fiber, the limited number of components lead to low maintenance and high reliability. The compact size of the LU1550F015 device allows it to be easily integrated into existing equipment.

The LU1550F015 laser is specified with an average output power of 150 mW and the pulse energy is rated to 30 uJ. The repetition rate is adjustable from 20-200 kHz and the pulse is specified with less than 10 ns. The beam quality is rated M2 ~ 1.1.

The industry-type laser unit is offered in a metal housing and will be supplied with an external power supply and driver software. Lumics said the performance of the device is based on its proprietary semiconductor technology which ensures high optical power and long-term reliability.

Lumics will exhibit at the Optatec show in Frankfurt, Germany, June 20-23, in booth C60. Product samples will be available in July.

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.
