Modulight has announced new designs for the FiberLight product family addressing both power and functionality requirements of medical, defence and industrial markets, including display and projection application for visible lasers. The new platform has an improved coupling efficiency combined with robust mechanical design, and detachable fibre as a new feature. The FiberLight product family comprises all the fibre-coupled laser array products of Modulight, based on one and two laser arrays. Currently, the following wavelengths and power levels are available as standard products:
- 635nm: 3W or 5W for single array and 7W for double array
- 650nm: 7W for single array and 12W for double array
- 1,470nm: 15W for single array and 30W for double array
- 1,550 nm: 15W for single array and 25W for double array
Other wavelengths and power levels are available on request. Typical configuration includes a thermistor for temperature monitoring and a female SMA-905 connector designed for 400 micron core NA=0.22 fibre. Other fibre diameters and additional features including monitoring photodiode, fibre sensor, and aiming beam are available on request.
“Improved FiberLight platform along with recent developments in our laser bar products form a product line that is competitive in various markets such as medical, research, defence, and industrial applications,” comments Tommi Hakulinen, product engineer responsible for Modulight’s fibre coupled products.
“These upgrades in performance and features of FiberLight platform put us to the forefront of the fibre coupled laser array technology in the visible red and eye-safe long-wavelength laser diodes. We have also focused on streamlining the manufacturing chain and pushing down the cost despite added features and higher output power and efficiency. Along with the FiberLight platform we are making constant improvements on both array and multiple single-emitter based fibre-coupled lasers, to accommodate needs in a range of applications, from laser projection to surgery and illumination.”
