New 16 Watt laser diode for challenging medical applications

AMS Technologies is proud to announce Eagleyard's new single-emitter laser diode with an optical output power up to 16 Watt

(PresseBox) (Martinsried, ) The new 16 Watt Broad Area Laser (BAL) complements the successfully established high power product line offered by eagleyard. A compact design containing an integrated fast and slow axis collimation makes this laser diode perfectly suited for challenging fiber coupling applications. The 16 Watt BAL-1064 is especially used for medical handheld applications as well as for material treatment.

With 16 Watt cw power out of a single emitter comprising a width of 200 μm, system design engineers have new options for achieving extremely small footprint solutions for their application.

"We are continuously striving to improve and conform our high quality products - especially for sensitive medical applications." says Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard Photonics. "The medical sector is a very extensive and fragmented field, guided by multiple requirements from various end customers. This requires a flexible product platform driven by continuous innovation and progress." explains Kneier furthermore. "As a result we serve this market with a wavelength offering 670 nm up to 1064 nm."
