II‐VI Incorporated (Nasdaq: IIVI), a leader in high power laser modules, today announced the introduction of its 976 nm pump laser modules with up to 80 Watts of wavelength-stabilized output power.
Pump laser modules with wavelength-stabilized output power enable ultrafast fiber lasers to operate with very short pulses for high precision drilling and marking. II-VI’s new pump laser modules achieve 80 W of output power, 4 times greater than the existing product, enabling fiber lasers to generate high power levels with fewer modules and lower their cost.
“Our pump laser modules leverage the reliability of our gallium arsenide semiconductor laser platform, proven through broad deployments in industrial laser systems and optical networks, and with decades of field operation,” said Chris Koeppen, Vice President of II-VI Industrial Laser Group. “Beyond ultrafast fiber-lasers for precision micromachining, our product portfolio enables advanced pulsed lasers for other applications including supercontinuum lasers and excitation sources for life sciences.”
