Delivering Leading Brightness and Power
Targeted at solid state laser pumping, direct diode applications and medical markets, Oclaro’s new line of 60W 27%FF (Fill Factor) bars and 80W 50%FF bars are developed for CW (Continuous Wave) operation on a conductive heat-sink. The 60W and 80W diode bars offer leading brightness and power on an industry standard CS type assembly, which is fully compatible to previously released products. The increased brightness of the 60W product makes it most suitable for beam shaping and fiber coupling applications, while the 80W product excels in pumping applications and line sources.
These laser diode bars represent the first Oclaro E2 facet passivated and hard-soldered bars to be incorporated in Oclaro’s collimated bar series and fiber coupled Prosario series. By integrating this technology into these two series, Oclaro can improve their output power, efficiency and reliability in order to offer customers a higher performing solution. This is another example of how Oclaro is taking its core technology and leveraging it across multiple product lines and markets.
Highest Level of Reliability
The new Oclaro high-powered laser products feature the Oclaro E2 mirror passivation process which protects the front facet of the bar against catastrophic optical mirror damage. In addition, the telecom grade AuSn (gold tin) hard solder makes the product suitable for industrial and defense applications in CW and hard-pulse operation mode. These two innovative manufacturing technologies significantly extend the life of Oclaro products by providing the highest level of reliability and robustness even in the most demanding applications.
