New Diode Lasers Offer Higher Performance For Surgical And Aesthetic Medical Procedures

Coherent Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) (Nasdaq: COHR) has expanded its offering of high power diode laser components for medical applications with new high performance products at 1060 nm and 1470 nm. Leveraging Coherent’s vertically integrated semiconductor manufacturing line, these products achieve new benchmarks in performance while ensuring superior batch-to-batch consistency and overall quality. 

At 1470 nm, Coherent introduces a low-fill factor 35W CW rated bar, ideal for fiber coupling and optical beam combining, as well as direct applications. The primary uses for this product are in surgical and aesthetic medical applications, including urology, lithotripsy, BPH treatment, vascular surgery, endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), skin rejuvenation, and acne treatment. The commercial availability of a 1470 nm bar now at 35W enables more effective procedures and, for particularly high power applications, provides a pathway to lower-cost system architectures.

At 1060 nm, Coherent now offers 100W bars and low-fill factor 40W bars. Primary uses include surgical and hair removal applications. The 40W bars are ideal for applications requiring optical beam combining or fiber delivery, while the 100W bars provide a cost-effective pathway to high power applications such as kW-level hair removal stacks.

Founded in 1966, Coherent, Inc. is a world leader in providing photonics based solutions to the commercial and scientific research markets, and is part of the Standard & Poor’s SmallCap 600 Index and the Russell 2000.  Please direct any questions about this press release to John M. Morales, Sr. Product Manager, at 408-764-4095.  For more information about Coherent, including product and financial updates, visit our website at
