Modulight adds features and scales up power from FiberLight product platform

Tampere, Finland & San Jose, CA, Jan 13th 2011 – Modulight announced today new designs for the FiberLight product family addressing both, power and functionality requirements of medical, defense and industrial markets, including display and projection application for visible lasers. The new platform has an improved coupling efficiency combined with robust mechanical design, and detachable fiber as a new feature. FiberLight product family comprises all the fiber coupled laser array products of Modulight, based on one and two laser arrays. Currently, the following wavelengths and power levels are available as standard products:

Wavelength (nm) Power, single array (W) Power, double array (W)
635 3 or 5 7
650 7 12
1470 15 30
1550 15 25


Other wavelengths and power levels are available on request. Typical configuration includes a thermistor for temperature monitoring and a female

SMA-905 connector designed for 400 micron core NA=0.22 fiber. Other fiber diameters and additional features including monitoring photodiode, fiber sensor, and aiming beam are available on request.

“Improved FiberLight platform along with recent developments in our laser bar products form a product line that is competitive in various markets such as: medical, research, defense, and industrial applications. These upgrades in performance and features of FiberLight platform put us to the forefront of the fiber coupled laser array technology in the visible red and eye-safe long-wavelength laser diodes. We have also focused on streamlining the manufacturing chain and pushing down the cost despite of added features and higher output power and efficiency. Along with the FiberLight platform we are making constant improvements on both, array and multiple single-emitter based fiber coupled lasers, to accommodate needs in a range applications from laser projection to surgery and illumination”, comments Dr. Tommi Hakulinen, product engineer responsible for Modulight’s fiber coupled products.
