Santa Clara, Calif.PulseLife Horizontal Arrays are Coherent Inc.'s new series of diode laser packages that deliver high-power output while offering simplified water-cooling requirements.
Using Coherent's PulseLife telecom-grade solder technology and AAATM (Aluminum-free Active Area) epitaxy, the Horizonal Arrays are available in two-bar or three-bar linear arrays, with output powers of 80 Watts and 120 Watts, respectively, at 808 nm.
The use of Coherent's macro-channel cooling architecture in the PulseLife Horizontal Arrays eliminates the corrosion problems that have plagued other diode laser cooling approaches. Their design enables the use of plain, filtered (<100 m) industrial cooling water, without the cost and complexity of a water-conditioned control system.
PulseLife Horizontal Arrays are primarily intended for solid-state laser pumping applications. The PulseLife's compact size facilitates placement around the laser crystal within the resonator. Integration is further simplified because the laser bar heat sink is electrically isolated.
PulseLife Horizontal Arrays also feature superior lifetime characteristics, with a mean time to failure (MTTF) of over 20,000 hours, further lowering their total cost of ownership.
