About the 1470nm Laser Diodes
New consumer applications in the cosmetic skin treatment market, such as wrinkle reduction, are driving increased demand for cost-effective laser diode solutions. By leveraging Oclaro’s Indium Phosphide technology, that was developed and perfected in the telecom industry, into 1470nm single laser diodes, Oclaro not only delivers the right product set, but it can also scale to volume quickly to meet the price points that are required to be successful in this market.
The 1470nm single-emitter laser diodes leverage proven Oclaro technology that is currently being used in eye-safe applications in the defense, materials processing and medical markets. The laser diode emits 2W output power at 1470nm from a 90um stripe and is available on a submount, a CMount or in a 105um fiber coupled configuration. The fiber coupled version is built on Oclaro’s widely used platform for single emitter fiber laser pump modules and tailored configurations with fast and slow axis lenses for beam confinement address specific high-volume consumer applications. In addition, the laser diodes have demonstrated extreme reliability after being life-tested for more than 5000 hours at 10.5A without any fails.
