EAST GRANBY, CT, Jan. 26, 2004 - Nufern, a leading independent manufacturer of fiber laser modules and specialty optical fibers, announced today it has begun shipping high-power fiber laser modules designed around Nufern’s industry-leading large mode area (LMA) fibers. The all-fiber fiber-laser modules utilize Nufern’s 20/400 LMA fiber which, in conjunction with optimized fiber Bragg gratings and high power pump combiner components made from Nufern’s passive double-clad (DC) fibers, ensure compatibility throughout the entire fiber laser module, essential for highly reliable, long-lifetime, high-power operation.
Following the successful commercial launch of Nufern’s LMA/DC fibers at Photonics West last year, Nufern worked with key component suppliers, such as high power pumps and signal multiplexers, to develop a family of DC components compatible with Nufern record-setting active fibers.
"These fiber laser modules mark a big step forward in Nufern’s evolution from a specialty fiber maker to a provider of fiber laser module solutions for the growing fiber laser market," said Martin F. Seifert, president and CEO of Nufern. "We are the first commercial entity to design, manufacture, and test the fiber and construct the high-power fiber laser module all under one roof, in the U.S. Many of our customers want the fiber components spliced and high-power testing performed on the entire fiber laser module, eliminating the need for them to develop in-house infrastructures or experience."
Nufern’s family of high power fiber laser modules, launched at Photonics West 2004, features a LMA 20/400 fiber laser cavity tested to over 100W CW output power. Nufern’s fiber laser modules are available for shipping with various pump combiner configurations, depending on customer requirements. These fiber laser modules are designed to give pump diode manufacturers and laser integrators a fast track into new fiber laser product development, minimizing costs and development time.
Nufern designs, manufactures, sells and supports fiber-intensive fiber laser modules and specialty optical fibers for a diverse range of industries. From its production, research and development facility in East Granby, Conn., USA, Nufern works from its core competencies in optical fiber design and integration to offer a wide array of standard fiber laser fiber laser modules, fiber amplifier fiber laser modules and specialty fibers. Nufern’s integrated team works closely with customers to provide rapid and cost-effective fiber laser module and fiber design services.
