Monmouth Junction, NJ, November 6, 2012 — AKELA Laser Corporation is pleased to announce the release of its single
and multi-channel laser diode modules in wavelengths from 635nm to 1950nm. The second in a series of releases over the next 6
months, these modules offer integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use. Suitable for both R&D and OEM
applications, they are designed for 100 micron, 0.22NA fibers and provide up to 2 Watts CW per channel.
Future product releases will include increasingly higher power levels as well as modules designed for the medical market with
