Sep 2000Coherent Inc.Request Info
Coherent Inc., Semiconductor Group, has released a series of high-power laser diodes in the 980-nm range. Consisting of 30-W bars and 25-W fiber array packages, the products are suitable for telecommunications applications including erbium-doped fiber amplifiers and solid-state laser pumps, as well as for direct-diode thermal applications in industry and in medicine. The 1-cm-long bars and packages are mounted on a 25 x 25-mm conduction-cooled package and are based on a 30% fill-factor bar that has a typical drive current of 40 A. The devices feature <3-nm spectral width at full width half maximum.
