LIMO Lissotschenko Mikrooptik GmbH has released a concept with a single micro-optical element for beam shaping and fiber coupling of laser diode bars. The monolithic fiber optic, which was tested with a 50-W laser mini-bar and 600-μm core, achieved a coupling efficiency of 90%. Additional advantages include reduced materials costs, compact design and just two optical surfaces, which are antireflection-coated. The device is suitable for mass production of high-power diode laser systems for cost-sensitive applications with limited brightness requirements.
