Intense Ltd. Announces Unique, Turnkey Architecture For Power Pack 630, High Power, Fiber-Coupled Laser Modules


San Jose, CA — Intense Ltd., developer of next generation lasers, has announced the Power Pack 630 high power, fiber-coupled laser modules at Photonics West 2008. The Power Pack features a unique design that delivers high power and brightness, up to 2.5 W at 630 nm from a 600 µm fiber with 0.22 numerical aperture, while operating at low current levels. The laser modules employ a new turnkey system architecture that combines forced air heat sink and cooling fan, monitor photodiode, thermoelectric cooler, and thermistor. For maximum flexibility, the Power Pack is configured as a stand-alone module that easily interfaces with commercial laser current drivers and smoothly integrates into OEM systems.

The Power Pack is designed for such medical and display applications as photodynamic therapy, medical imaging, illumination, and entertainment.

"Today's medical and display system developers are focused on smaller size, higher brightness, and lower operating power requirements," stated Chris Baker, VP Sales and Marketing at Intense Ltd. "Our Power Pack visible CW laser modules make use of a new architecture that provide all this and more in an integrated, turnkey package. This reduces overall system costs and makes new product development quick and easy."

Visible CW Laser Modules
The Power Pack 630 laser modules are high power, fiber-coupled laser modules capable of up to 2.5 W of visible output from a 600 µm fiber with 0.22 numerical aperture. Each module can be configured to interface to a variety of standard fiber output connectors.

The Power Pack 630 is configured as a compact, stand-alone module. Each module includes an internal visible aiming beam for verifying alignment of laser output to the target. A 15-pin D connector provides easy integration of I/O signals.

Featured at Photonics West
The Power Pack 630 was featured at Photonics West, along with the Intense-HPD Series 6000 and Series 6100 QWI enabled, high power single emitter laser diodes. The 6000 Series and 6100 Series are very high brightness, single mode lasers with up to 200 mW of kink-free power. The Series 6000 laser diodes are available in wavelengths of 830 nm ±5nm and the Series 6100 are available in wavelengths of 980 nm ±5 nm and 980 nm ±10 nm. Both are based on the company's patented Quantum Well Intermixing technology, which increases the brightness and reliability of laser diodes while avoiding the usual problems associated with catastrophic optical mirror damage.
