Apr 2011
JENA, Germany, April 20, 2011 — Optoelectronics manufacturer Jenoptik announced it received a €3.3 million ($4.4 million) order for diode-pumped green thin-disk lasers suitable for medical use. This year and next, Jenoptik’s Lasers & Material Processing Div. will deliver the units to an undisclosed German manufacturer.

The company said that since 1999, it has mass-produced approximately 2000 of these medical lasers per year at its Jena site and that more than 13,000 are in use around the world.

Emitting laser light at 532 nm, they are ideally suited for integration into laser therapy systems. They can be applied in the fields of ophthalmology, dermatology, surgery and urology.
