MAINZ, Germany, Feb. 22, 2010 – Dilas is delivering new conduction-cooled, multibar laser modules with a homogeneous top hat optical beam profile, capable of handling up to 500-W output in standard wavelengths. The homogenized conduction-cooled, multibar modules are based on proprietary micro-optics beam shaping technology. By using this concept, the company obtains a 95% homogenized intensity profile. The spot geometries can vary from line sources measuring 12 mm × 300 µm to an area with 52 × 2 mm2. Customized focus geometries are also possible. Designed for materials processing applications such as plastics welding, thermal annealing and brazing, the modules also are suitable for soldering, recrystallization and drying of surfaces in solar cell production applications. They are available with optional features including a power sensor and a user-exchangeable protection window. Each module is manufactured according to the industry’s highest standards, resulting in stable sources achieving high optical efficiency and reducing capital expenditures and operating costs. Also available are fiber-coupled multibar modules for use in applications such as pump sources for rod, fiber and disk lasers; therapeutic and diagnostic medical devices; defense, materials processing and graphic arts.
