II-VI Suwtech and II-VI Laser Enterprise to Launch Next Generation 808 nm Laser Diode Products at Laser World of Photonics 2015 in Munich, Germany

PITTSBURGH, June 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI) – II-VI Suwtech and II-VI Laser Enterprise, both wholly owned subsidiaries of II-VI Incorporated, today announced the launch of its next generation 808nm multi-mode high power laser diode single emitter portfolio at Laser World of Photonics 2015 in Munich, Germany.

II-VI's new 808nm laser diode single emitter chip has been optimized to deliver output powers above 10W with higher efficiencies at improved reliability enabling next generation higher power fiber coupled modules for pumping in material processing and medical applications.

The expanded portfolio of 808nm fiber coupled modules offers output powers from 15W up to 30W with the same mechanical dimension and fiber configuration (200um fiber core/0.22NA). The new fiber coupled products are an expansion of the proven high volume generic 'BMU' single emitter platform. These reliable high output power/brightness BMU's come in an easy to mount compact hermetic package. DPSS manufacturers, medical instrument makers and other subsystem developers are able to upgrade their product performance by replacing current low power modules, simplify their product configuration by using fewer modules and improve their product reliability by less fiber management complexity.

Based on state of the art technology chip design and industry-leading high volume package manufacturing, II-VI offers industry leading quality and an extended lifetime with these new products. Wavelength range and fiber connector types can be tailored to meet specific customer applications. The new generation laser diode chip is also available with open heat sink on an AlN submount or on a C-mount.

II-VI Suwtech and II-VI Laser Enterprise sales engineers and technical support staff will be available for customer inquiries at Laser World of Photonics, Hall B1, Booth No. 403.
