1470 nm high-power lasers
These lasers emitting at 1470 nm are mainly targeted to industrial and medical applications, like soft materials processing, plastic welding, fiber amplifier pumping and medical applications, such as vein surgery. Designed for continuous-wave operation, the ML1789 laser bar provides an output power of 15 W whereas the single-emitter ML1802 reaches 600 mW power levels. As an option, the introduced products are offered from chip level to packaged and fiber coupled lasers as any other Modulight products.

830 nm single-mode high-power lasers

830 nm single-mode lasers (LumiLase), are housed in a 5.6 mm TO-can and produce up to 50 mW power (product code ML1545). Applications directly benefiting from this release include: laser pointers for dusty and underwater environments, distance measurement, laser illumination, and range finding.

Modulight lasers for medical applications

Lasers are increasingly deployed in medicine from surgery to therapeutic procedures including ophthalmic and cosmetic applications. In surgery, lasers are used to cut, coagulate, and vaporize and various types of lasers and pulse energies are used based on the absorption properties of the target tissue. Typically surgery lasers deploy diode lasers either directly or for optical pumping of a Nd:YAG lasers. Modulight's ChiliLase, RangerLase and LumiLase product families fit well to this type of applications.

Red laser diodes and bars included in Modulight ChiliLase product family are needed for photodynamic therapy (PDT) and low level laser therapy (LLLT). PDT is an important technique for the treatment of cancer, age-related macular degeneration, psoriasis and for bacteria reduction in dentistry. LLLT is typically used for therapeutic and/or stimulating skin treatments and involve lower laser power doses than e.g. surgical operations.
