Dilas

Fibre-coupled diode laser pump module

Dilas has introduced a fibre-coupled diode laser pump module, developed for fibre laser pumping with kilohertz modulation capabilities.
The fibre-coupled pump module is based on a single-emitter platform in a sealed housing. It offers up to 30W laser power from a 105μm pigtailed fibre into a 0.15 numerical aperture at 915nm or 976nm (with optional wavelength stabilisation from 976nm-VBG).

Compact-Evolution

Compact-Evolution diode laser system from Dilas delivers 1,200W output power from a 300µm (0.22NA) fibre at 976nm. The system is equipped with a standard diode laser control unit (DLC) used for external interfaces such as the common analogue/digital interface, BUS interfaces and remote access option for easy analyses and parameter settings.

SF2500/10

Dilas, the diode laser company, now offers a higher power fibre-coupled diode laser system for materials processing applications with output power of 2.5kW at 980nm.

The Dilas SF2500/10 fibre-coupled system is based on micro-channel cooled diode laser bars featuring a compact footprint and convenient aiming beam. With a beam parameter product of 110mm mrad, this system delivers 2.5 kilowatts through a cladding-mode free QBH high-power 1,000µm core diameter fibre, 0.22NA at single wavelength of 980nm.
