WOBURN, Mass., and SYMONSTON, Australia -- AOFR, an Aegis Lightwave company and a leading supplier of fused fiber-couplers and laser-combiners for the communications, test equipment, industrial, sensing, military and aerospace markets, announced today a new laser-combiner product line with high-power handling capability in a small form-factor and available in a broad range of transmission wavelengths. This new product line will be on display at OFC/NFOEC 2010 in San Diego, CA in Aegis Booth #419.

The new products from AOFR combine up to 7 pump-lasers, each with an input power of 25 W, into a wide variety of fiber geometries as well as polarization-maintaining fibers. The laser-combiners come in (6+1)x1 or Nx1 configurations in a small 5 x 5 x 50 mm form-factor that enable fiber-laser designs with a compact footprint and energy-efficient air-cooled architecture. The laser-combiners can be designed for a wide variety of fiber-laser output wavelengths including 1064, 1550 and 2050 nm, addressing a broad range of applications in industrial, medical and military markets.

“We bring to the industrial laser market our decades of experience in telecom where we have a proven track record for high-quality and high-reliability products and where we have shown the ability to scale manufacturing to high volumes,” said David Moser, PLM for Laser-Combiners, AOFR. “Working with a reliable laser-combiner supplier will be a key factor enabling fiber-laser vendors to meet the rapid growth in demand whilst continuing to achieve record levels of output power.”
