AKELA Releases High Efficiency Laser Diode Modules
August 13, 2012
Monmouth Junction, NJ, August 13, 2012 — AKELA Laser Corporation is pleased to announce the release
of the first of a series of laser modules and other products based on AKELA’s market-leading
long wavelength laser diodes
from 1030nm to 1950nm. These entry-level modules are designed for both 200 micron and 400 micron 0.22NA fibers, and provide
up to 20 Watts CW. Future releases of laser modules will include increasingly higher power levels as well as modules with
built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fiber sensors.
“AKELA’s high efficiency modules operate at low drive currents and are not subject to catastrophic failure.
Offering a built-in thermistor and an SMA output so that the customer can use the fiber brand of his choice and replace the fibers
at will, these modules provide unmatched value and also help customers lower their overall system costs by enabling them to use
less expensive drive electronics, power supplies and cooling methods,” said Bob Sellers, CEO of AKELA.
“We designed these modules to give customers an economical, standard version of
the custom modules we are so often asked to build.
Of course, we are still happy to modify the laser,
the module or design custom modules if these devices do not meet all the customer’s requirements.”
AKELA Laser Corporation is a high power laser diode manufacturer specializing in custom laser assemblies
that offer any desired combination of the light source, optics, cooling, and drivers in wavelengths ranging
from 635nm to 2 microns. Founded in 2003, AKELA also provides laser drivers and custom laser systems as well
as standard laser diode packages in both free space and fiber-coupled configurations.
