Near-Infrared Power Laser
Dilas releases a near-infrared (NIR) emitting 60 W continuous-wave (CW) power laser at 808 nm and 980 nm from a single 19 emitter bar. Available in the industry-standard (25 325 mm) conduction-cooled package, this easy-to-integrate, high-brightness, multimode diode laser is an appropriate pump source for solid-state lasers used for medical and industrial applications. They feature brightness, power and reliability. The device has an operating current of 60 A and compliance voltage of 1.7 V. Beam divergence is less than 65° by less than 10° for 90% enclosed power. As an added feature, an AR-coated aspherical cylinder lens to collimate the fast-axis to less than 12 mrad can be included. For applications requiring a collimated beam, a slow-axis lensing capability can further improve bar brightness.
