Bookham Announces 20W Fiber Laser Pump Module

Bookham introduced a single emitter-based pump laser module capable of delivering 20W of fiber coupled power into a 105um, 0.15NA fiber. The product is designed to target fiber laser and direct systems for material processing applications, and will allow laser manufacturers to optimize their dollar per watt ratio.

Bookham said the increased power output of its pump module enables customers to generate greater power levels for fiber laser pumping with fewer modules, allowing for more compact pump configurations, greater pump block efficiency and simplification of packaging.
