The First Single-Frequency 10-W Fiber Laser
BIRKEROD, Denmark, Feb. 16, 2006 -- Fiber laser maker Koheras is introducing the Boostik HP, what it says is the first truly single-frequency, mode-hop-free high-power fiber laser offering up to 10 W of output power. The laser is designed withreduced susceptibility to acoustic noise and vibrations, with unmatched low frequency and intensity noise as well as a narrow linewidth less than 100 kHz, according to Koheras. The laser is available ready for operation as a stand-along unit in a 19-in. rack system, including state-of-the-art digital control electronics. It is available with a number of standard wavelengths such as 1064 and 1083 nm (other wavelength options include 1112, 1118 & 1121 nm and in the 1.5 µm range).

The laser is delivered with a connectorized single-mode fiber pigtailed output, PM or non-PM, and optionally with free space collimated output. The laser targets applications such as wind Doppler LIDAR (light detection and ranging), sensor interrogation, spectroscopy and atom trapping.

fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
