NKT Photonics Nabs Large Volume Contract for Fiber Lasers
BIRKERØD, Denmark, Feb. 23, 2011 — Fiber laser manufacturer NKT Photonics A/S announced its entrance into a large volume contract with a non-disclosed party for the supply of its low noise Koheras fiber lasers.
Under the contract, the company will provide 200 BasiK modules on a two-year delivery term.
The Koheras fiber lasers feature very low frequency and intensity noise, as well as inherent single frequency operation. They are suitable for coherent sensor interferometry where the measurement sensitivity scales with the frequency noise level of the laser source.
The company will deliver the lasers, which will be supplied as small, fully integrated modules that can be easily installed into advanced fiber optical sensing systems.
In addition to this project, the company has also provided the lasers for other large projects within structural integrity monitoring of pipelines, oil exploitation, acoustic detection for the defense sector and as Doppler sensing for the wind turbine industry.
