At the LASER World of Photonics from 15-18 June 2009 in Munich, Jenoptik“s Lasers & Material Processing division will present its new developments as well as the entire added value chain in laser material processing – beginning with semiconductor material over to laser beam sources and laser systems up to system and automation technology for complex laser machines – in Hall C2 at Stand 311. The new fiber-coupled diode laser with single emitters will be the highlight of the trade show for the Diode Laser business unit. The module achieves an optical output power of 50 watts in continuous mode from a 105 um fiber with a numeric aperture of 0.15. The diode laser is conductively (passively) cooled, thus making the handling for the user extremely easy. Due to the high beam quality, single-emitter fiber coupling serves especially as pumping source for fiber lasers. Further features of the newly developed product are the two meters long, cleaved fiberglass and the integrated filter against reflection. The new JenLas fiber OEM series offers ns- or cw-fiber lasers for a wide range of applications of laser material processing. The JenLas fiber ns 10-30 Watt are air-cooled fiber lasers with an adjustable pulse length of 9 to 200 ns. Besides marking and labelling, they are excellently suited to perform a variety of cutting, drilling and structuring jobs. Depending on the product model, peak pulse power of up to 15 kW can be achieved. The JenLas fiber ns 10-30 Watt are available in basic versions and advanced versions, each version representing a particular performance class. The basic systems with 10- or 20-Watt power provide a modulation range from 1 to 100 kHz and fixed pulse lengths. The basic systems are hardware controlled. The advanced systems with 12-, 20- and 30-Watt power offer extended control capabilities and an enhanced range of performance. In addition, they facilitate cw-operation and pulse repetition rates of up to 500 kHz with flexible pulse lengths adjustment. Each ns-laser type includes a beam delivery fiber with optical isolator. Jenoptik also offers a comprehensive set of accessories such as air-cooling heat sink, laser controller or beam expander. With the development of the JENOPTIK-VOTANTM Solas 1800, Jenoptik is expanding its activities in the photovoltaic market, combining laser technology know-how in all aspects of the JenLas disk IR50 disk laser with complex system technology. Based on its expertise along the entire added value chain – from laser process through to finished production facility for a wide range of laser material processing tasks-the Jenoptik Lasers & Material Processing division developed a laser processing machine for drilling minute through holes in wafers for solar cells. The JENOPTIK-VOTANTM Solas1800 will be offered in two versions, a stand-alone system for the development of new products and processes and a technology module for integration into the existing in-line production system. Jenoptik“s Lasers & Material Processing division comprises the two-diode laser companies JENOPTIK Diode Lab GmbH and JENOPTIK Laserdiode GmbH, the Laser Systems business unit of JENOPTIK Laser, Optik, Systeme GmbH as well as JENOPTIK Innovavent GmbH and JENOPTIK Automatisierungstechnik GmbH.
