ST2 diode laser

Lumentum has added a 200W output power fibre-coupled pump laser module to its portfolio. The new ST2 diode laser makes use of Lumentum's high-brightness pump laser family, and supports the build-your-own kilowatt laser market.

Powered by Lumentum’s diode laser chip, combined with optical and mechanical design innovations to achieve ultra-low optical loss and power management, the ST2 delivers 200W of power within a 0.15 numerical aperture of a 135µm core fibre. The high endurance and power stability of the ST2 enables it to withstand prolonged use in manufacturing applications.
