TUCSON, Ariz. -- NP Photonics expands its line of industry-leading Scorpion(TM) single-frequency fiber lasers with the introduction of the Scorpion high-power laser. This latest innovation provides 0.5 to 5 watts of output power and operates over the eye-safe wavelengths of the C-band (1530 nm-1565 nm) as well as near-infrared wavelengths from 1030 nm to 1085 nm. The laser uses a master-oscillator, power-amplifier configuration that boosts output significantly while maintaining the narrow linewidth (<3 kHz) and low phase noise at the same level as its lower-power Scorpion products.

The all-fiber design makes the Scorpion high-power laser immune to many environmental stressors, practically eliminating coupling loss and drastically decreasing sensitivity to vibration and acoustics. The output power emanates from a polarization-preserving single-mode fiber and delivers a beam with excellent spatial mode properties and a high polarization extinction ratio. In addition, its unique design minimizes overall system heat and power consumption.

"At Photonics West in January 2005, we showed a prototype 2W fiber laser", said Philippe Brak, vp of sales & marketing for NP Photonics. "Based on strong customer interest, we increased our R & D efforts so that we can now offer up to 5 watts of output power."
