JDS Uniphase expand the Industrial Diode Laser series to offer 100W of CW or pulsed power

JDSU expand the range of available lasers in the Industrial Diode Laser (IDL) series with the introduction of diode lasers offering 100W of CW or pulsed output power at wavelengths 915nm, 940nm and 965nm.

Previously available in models with 20W or 50W of CW or pulsed output power at 920nm, the introduction of these new diode lasers sees JDSU continuing their commitment to offer robust, reliable and cost-effective laser diode systems for the industrial market.

JDSU's IDL lasers incorporate multiple single-emitter diodes, which benefit from relatively stress-free operation compared to a diode bar in a similar situation. These single-emitters are less likely to fail and benefit from a diode lifetime which is unaffected by pulsed mode operation. This robustness and long-life expectancy is critical in the many industrial applications that this laser is routinely used in. The all-in-glass design of these fibre delivered diode laser offers superior beam quality in pulsed or CW operation.

The IDL series is supplied with a 600┬Ám, 0.22NA delivery fibre terminated with an SMA connector. An optional focusing termination provides a round, top hat beam profile that allows for uniform heat distribution at the working distance of 85mm. The air-cooled power-supply may be mounted in standard 19inch racks.

Typical applications for the IDL series include welding, marking and manufacturing applications.
