Optical Pumping

High brightness and extremely long lifetime with unmatched reliability

Diode lasers used to optically pump solid-state laser gain media have extremely long lifetimes, are efficient enough to dramatically reduce the heat in the laser gain media, and offer excellent output spatial profiles for better optical wavelength conversion. Because of their excellent reliability, diode lasers from Lumentum are ideally suited for use in solid-state laser and fiber-laser pumping.

Lumentum fiber-coupled diode lasers enable reliable, lower-cost, and robust fiber laser design alternatives across all types of power levels. The highly-integrated and ultra-compact 140 W and 200 W ST Series fiber laser pumps, the highest-brightness diode lasers in the market, have brought the power of kW fiber lasers to a wide range of machine-tool customers.
