Full Spectrum of Products; Lumentum Thought Leaders at Laser World of Photonics Munich

Milpitas, Calif., and Munich, Germany, June 26, 2017 – Lumentum Holdings Inc. (“Lumentum”) will showcase its latest products addressing the dynamic industrial diode laser, commercial laser, and 3D sensing markets at Laser World of Photonics Munich in Munich, Germany, from June 26 - June 29, 2017 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Hall A2 – Stand: #320.  

Conference attendees are invited to see the latest industrial and consumer diode, pump, and commercial laser products. On hand is the new generation CORELIGHT® Series – Kilowatt-Class Fiber Laser Engines as well as the previously announced 200 W Fiber-Coupled Diode Pump Laser Module ST2, the Lumentum ultrafast laser PicoBlade®2, the Q-Series® diode-pumped UV lasers, and 3D sensing and industrial diode laser displays. 

Lumentum Pump Lasers  

Announced at SPIE Photonics West 2017, a new fiber-coupled pump laser module (the ST2) is now in full production. Fiber-coupled pump laser modules are a main component in applications such as pump sources for rod, fiber and disk lasers, amongst others. The ST2 is part of the ultra-compact and high-brightness ST series which enables a “build-your-own” kilowatt (kW) laser. The ST series leverages a long history of using the most advanced fiber-coupled device packages such as the L4, incorporating a highly reliable design in a scalable commercial product. The ST series undergoes rigorous testing for endurance and power stability to withstand prolonged use in manufacturing settings.

Ultrafast Industrial Lasers – PicoBlade 2  

Lumentum has one of the highest precision, highest reliability, most flexible ultrafast industrial laser portfolios in the industry. The most recent addition—PicoBlade 2—is in volume production and ideal for a wide variety of applications, from micromachining to the life sciences and metrology. Customers worldwide are taking advantage of its field-proven differentiating features: FlexBurst™, MegaBurst™, Sync, and AccuTrig™ to control pulse format, pulse timing, and energy for ultimate throughput. 

High-powered Q-Series Lasers  

Two Q-Series diode-pumped UV lasers—Q306 and Q305—will be showcased in the booth. They support an extensive range of micromaterials processing applications where customers can leverage their higher average power to enable faster overall throughput. They deliver up to 1 mJ of energy at 355 nm with exceptional beam quality (M2 less than 1.2). The Q-Series is a leading high-power Q-switched laser solution. 

CORELIGHT Series – New Generation Kilowatt-Class Fiber Laser Engines  

The next generation CORELIGHT YLE fiber laser engines—highlighted earlier this year at SPIE Photonics West 2017—are now available in production volumes. These cost-effective and highly-configurable fiber laser systems are offered in single-module 2 kW and 3 kW systems and multimodule 4 kW, 6 kW and 9 kW systems. Lumentum will showcase a CORELIGHT YLE 9 kW laser system at Laser World of Photonics Munich 2017.
The CORELIGHT YLE series fiber laser systems established an industry-leading position for flexibility and peak performance in challenging cutting, welding, and material deposition deployments worldwide. Customers now have additional configuration options to differentiate their latest machine tool offerings. CORELIGHT’s exceptional beam characteristics enable high-quality and high-speed cutting performance of steel, copper, brass, aluminum, and many other materials. CORELIGHT products meet high-reliability standards critical for high-volume macromachining industrial environments.

3D Sensing  

Lumentum has a wide range of 3D sensing products to enable next-generation capabilities for diverse consumer electronics and automotive applications. Lumentum products include one of the industry’s most reliable high-power diode laser portfolios including edge-emitters, fiber-coupled devices, and vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs).  A VCSEL wafer and a light detection and ranging (lidar) display will showcase 3D sensing capabilities.
