Quintessence Photonics (Sylmar, CA) offers a new laser designed to deliver high power in a single mode beam for seeding fiber and solid state lasers and for use in direct applications. The seed laser can produce single-frequency beams of up to 1.5 W CW at 1064 nm and up to 1 W CW at 1550 nm. The design uses a two-part chip that combines a low power section and an amplifying section. A semiconductor chip mounted onto a heat sink with hard solder is included, and an optional single-mode fiber coupling is also available. The compact design simplifies laser systems for growth markets such as industrial, defense, and communication systems.
