Modulight releases multi-chip red laser modules for industrial, display and medical applications

Tampere, Finland & San Jose, CA, May 19th 2011 – Modulight announced today the expansion of FiberLight product family by addition of multi-chip red laser modules for industrial, display and medical applications. The released products fill in the gap between the butterfly packaged single emitters and fiber coupled laser arrays already represented in FiberLight family. The laser modules can host up to 4 laser diodes which are coupled to a single 200 μm core fiber with NA=0.22 and terminated with a standard SMA-905 connector. A typical configuration includes a thermistor and a TEC-element for temperature control and a photodiode for power monitoring

At the moment, the following wavelengths and power levels are available as standard multi-chip laser module products:

Wavelength (nm)
Power (W)
3-chip version
Power (W)
4-chip version
635 1 1.5
650 2 3
670 2.5 3
680 2.5 3

“Single-emitter approach is beneficial compared to array approach in terms of better heat management, higher power per emitter, and better brightness. In addition, the laser diodes are wired in series leading to a low operation current, which is often beneficial from the system design point of view”, comments Dr. Tommi Hakulinen, product engineer responsible for Modulight’s fiber coupled products.
