LASER COMPONENTS has extended its product range with fiber-optic pump combiners by Lightel. With these passive components, pump signals of up to 36 laser sources can be bundled to achieve higher exit powers in high-energy fiber lasers.
This special air-clad technology from Lightel allows power input coupling with efficiencies of 90% or higher. Depending on the application, these combiners can be delivered with various fiber types and combinations, as well as polarization-maintaining configurations.
This technology is not only used in fiber lasers but also in erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFA).
