High Performance Laser Diode Arrays
Cutting Edge Optronics has been supplying the laser industry with high-quality CW and QCW laser diode arrays for a long time. Packages in all standard configurations like Derringer, Shooter, Cs, G, A, or Micro Channel stacks are available in different categories, with heat pipe cooling or water cooling with macro- and micro-channels.
Different wavelengths in the range from 790 to 1550 nm are available: most common are: 630, 915, 940-980, 1120, 1470 and 1530 nm.
The output power of the standard diodes goes up to 120W in CW and 300W in QCW
In special packages with up to 80 bars, 16kW in QCW can be achieved. CEO also has a lot of experience with wavelength stabilization using built-in volume Bragg gratings. This is important for efficient pumping into a narrow absorption line like Nd:YAG at 885nm and Yb:YAG at 975 nm. For higher brightness, high-density stacks with a pitch of only 150 microns are offered.
