II-VI Suwtech to Introduce Two New Series of Green Diode Lasers at Laser World of Photonics 2015 in Munich, Germany

PITTSBURGH, June 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq:IIVI) – II-VI Suwtech will introduce two new product lines, high power low noise (HPLN) laser and high power fiber coupled (HPFC) laser, at Laser World of Photonics 2015 in Munich, Germany.

Both HPLN and HPFC lasers are developed from II-VI Suwtech's high power green diode laser (GDL). HPLN lasers realize less than 0.5% RMS noise at output power higher than 100 mW. HPFC lasers achieve high output power up to 300 mW with high polarization stability in single mode (SM), multiple mode (MM) and polarized mode (PM) fibers.

In 2014 II-VI Suwtech developed a new patented microchip design (patent approved) for its green diode laser that successfully lowers noise at high output power. Our HPLN, with its high power stability, high reliability, good beam quality and high PER, has wide applications in life science, laser display and machine vision.

II-VI Suwtech developed high power fiber-coupled (HPFC) lasers from its green laser with high coupling efficiency. This new technology enables a laser beam outputting from fiber with exceptional polarization stability (PER>17dB), long term reliability, and high coupling efficiency. Based on this innovative technology, II-VI Suwtech launched compact, cost-efficient fiber-coupled high power lasers up to 300 mW in various types of fiber, single mode, multiple mode and polarization mode. HPFC laser has wide applications in the fields of bioscience and analytical instruments.

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