Modulight introduces high-power 1550nm TO-can lasers

Tampere, Finland, October 17th, 2007– Modulight, Inc., a manufacturer of high- performance optical semiconductor components, today announced the arrival of its laser family’s newest member: the high-power, single-emitter 1550 nm laser chip housed in a 9-mm TO-can. The product code is ML1470.

Designed mainly for free space applications requiring powerful laser beams at eye-safe wavelengths, this new device capitalizes on Modulight’s decade of expertise in this wavelength range. As a result, high power and high efficiency become a promise delivered, rendering the product applicable also to battery-operated equipment. The laser comes in a variety of optical configurations, being capped with a flat window or (on customer demand) with a collimating lens. Heat-sinking and cooling requirements are modest, as the new laser module requires only 3 A for full optical output beyond 500mW in continuous wave operation.
