NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J., Jan. 26, 2012 — Intense Inc. has released a 10-W version of its Series 8000 793-nm high-brightness laser pump modules. The medium-power pump delivers 10 W of output from a 105-μm core fiber with a 0.22 numerical aperture (NA). The compact modules are designed for use as pump sources for thulium and holmium pulsed laser systems in defense and medical applications. The fiber-coupled package provides a robust and compact solution for pumping applications with power requirements in the 10-W range. It is now available in fiber-coupled single emitters at 4.5 W, as well as compact, multiemitter, high-brightness, fiber-coupled 10- and 20-W modules. The series is based on proprietary next-generation 793-nm single-emitter chips that incorporate narrow beam divergence and a proprietary, patented Quantum Well Intermixing technology to maximize power, brightness and reliability. Besides the standard fibers, 0.15-NA fiber options are available upon request. The same 793-nm chip technology is offered in a variety of free-space configurations. The Series 8000 793-nm single- and multiemitter pump modules at 4.5, 10 and 20 W are available in custom packaging to match OEM system requirements.
