CW Fiber Lasers
CW Fiber lasers: Fiber lasers are a specific subset of DPSS lasers. However, instead of a crystal, they utilize a doped fiber optic cable as the gain medium. Typically, they utilize rare-earth elements like erbium, ytterbium, and neodymium as the doping agent.
Fiber lasers have several advantages over traditional DPSS lasers. These advantages derive from the geometry of the fiber optic itself. The geometry provides the innate ability to have an extremely long single-mode optical cavity. Therefore, it allows for the production of two main configurations. Firstly, it allows for extremely high-power, single-mode lasers producing unprecedented brightness. Finally, it allows for extremely narrow band lasers with near-perfectly single-frequency output.
Our CW fiber lasers are available with options for single-mode or broadband, in wavelengths from 1060nm to 2050nm. Output power from 10s of milliwatts (10mW) to 100W and narrow linewidth options are also available. Finally, OEM laser packages and modules are available.
