2014-01-24 09:12:56 - In San Francisco Jenoptik will be showcasing, from February 4–6, new technologies and further developments of its products from the Laser & Material Processing at Photonics West. Jenoptik is supporting again Entrepreneurs in Photonics in the SPIE Startup Challenge as the Founding Sponsor.
qcw Stack with twice the Power
Jenoptik will show an improved version of the previously available JOLD-x-QA-8A at the Photonics West 2014, namely the JOLD-x-QA-2x8A qcw stack, thus broadening its portfolio in the field of qcw laser sources for medical applications.
The module to be presented with the double vertical qcw diode laser stack stands out due to the maximum output power of 1.6 kilowatts, which means that the power has been doubled compared to the previous model. Hence, the stack is suitable for pumping applications and material processing even better. As the size of the emitting area has been increased to approx. 25×12 square millimeters with this stack, process speeds can now be increased significantly for the respective applications.
sealed housing is dust-proof and gives the user a small, lightweight and robust design. In combination with the easy-to-handle service water cooling, the module can easily and quickly be integrated by the end user.
Frequency-doubled, diode-pumped disk laser JenLas® D2.mini 8W for ophthalmology and show
A green disk laser with an output power of up to 8 watt (cw) will be exhibited in San Francisco as well. The JenLas® D2.mini 8W is based on the JenLas® D2 technology – a core competence of Jenoptik for as long as 14 years. As a beam source, the laser is used especially in the field of medicine. Here, mainly in ophthalmology for retinal photocoagulation, but also in laser endoscopy and dermatology. In addition to those medical applications, the laser is also used successfully in the field of entertainment for laser shows and projections.
The frequency-doubled, diode-pumped disk laser is characterized by high beam quality and a wavelength of 532 nanometers. In addition to the increased power, the OEM design and the small overall size allow for easy integration in various laser-based processing systems at the customer’s premises and the miniaturization of the end devices. The green disk laser is produced at Jenoptik in Jena. The production has been certified to the strict standards in the field of medical technology.
