Oclaro Inc. has announced that its 1470-nm laser diodes are being
targeted at new high-volume cosmetic skin treatment consumer markets. The single-emitter
devices are being used in eye-safe applications in the defense, materials processing
and medical markets. They emit 2-W output power at 1470 nm from a 90-μm stripe
and are available on a submount, a C-mount or in a 105-μm fiber-coupled configuration.
The latter version is built on the company’s platform for single-emitter fiber
laser pump modules and for tailored configurations with fast- and slow-axis lenses
for beam confinement address-specific applications. The laser diodes were life-tested
for more than 5000 h at 10.5 A with no failures.
