7 March 2014 High reliability of high power and high brightness diode lasers
Author Affiliations +
We report on continued progress in the development of high power and high brightness single emitter laser diodes from 790 nm to 980 nm for reliable use in industrial and pumping applications. High performance has been demonstrated in nLIGHT’s diode laser technology in this spectral range with corresponding peak electrical-to-optical power conversion efficiency of ~65%. These pumps have been incorporated into nLIGHT’s fiber-coupled pump module, elementTM. We report the latest updates on performance and reliability of chips and fiber-coupled modules. This paper also includes a new chip design with significantly narrower slow-axis divergence which enables further improved reliable power and brightness. Preliminary reliability assessment data for these devices will be presented here as well.
