Jenoptik (Jena, Germany) has announced that it will show a variety of new and enhanced laser technology products and optical systems at the LASER 2013 trade show, which will be held in Munich, Germany, from May 13 to 16. The company’s Lasers & Material Processing division will include new semiconductor lasers with better efficiency and a new fiber-coupled diode laser module, while the Optical Systems division will introduce new UV lenses for laser direct imaging, and more. More details on each new product are as follows:
New single emitters and laser bars
The new semiconductor lasers are ideal, according to the company, as pumping sources for fiber lasers and disk lasers. They feature efficiencies of over 70 percent, with a low beam divergence to combine high output with long lifetime and low costs. All the various models are subject to stringent in-process controls and comply with the company’s requirements for quality, reliability and lifetime.
New fiber-coupled diode laser module
The company’s new semi-bar-based fiber-coupled diode laser module is capable of a 200 Watt output power from a 200 micrometer fiber. The module has a pilot laser and internal output monitoring, which makes it ideal for direct material processing, such as hardening of functional surfaces or for plastics welding.
UV lenses for mask projection and ablation
The Jenoptic Optical Systems division will unveil UV lenses used for wavelengths down to 193 nanometers and for magnifications of 1:1 to 1:20. The customer-specific lenses have a high image quality and durability in addition to the use of quartz glass and UV-resistant coatings. The company says these UV lenses can be use for micro-material processing, and are already being used in the semiconductor industry for structuring and drilling, and for the production of LCD and OLED displays.
