AKELA Releases Multi-Wavelength Laser Diode Modules
Multi Wavelength Module
January 17, 2013
Monmouth Junction, NJ, January 17, 2013 — AKELA Laser Corporation is pleased to announce
the release of its multi-wavelength laser diode modules in wavelengths from 650nm to 1950nm.
The third in a series of high power laser diode module releases, these modules can operate up to
five wavelengths plus an aiming beam from a single fiber. The module footprint is designed
around standard high-power thermoelectric coolers for convenient integration and incorporates
an optional blast shield, fiber sensor/interlock, and the choice of a red or green aiming beam.
Future module product releases will include increasingly higher power levels as well as an
expanded set of modules with drive electronics.
“AKELA’s multi-wavelength modules are the most configurable on the market, making them
ideal for both the OEM and R&D sectors. With powers up to 25W in the 1.2 to 1.95 micron
range, these units give medical and industrial customers the ability to treat multiple conditions or
combine wavelengths to make their outcomes more effective with a single laser module. This is
particularly helpful since so many device manufacturers are moving to a platform or multiapplication
approach with their laser systems. In addition, the flexibility AKELA’s multiwavelength
modules provide for R&D environments is unmatched,” said Bob Sellers, CEO of
The multi-wavelength laser diode modules feature individually addressable emitters, offer power
monitors for each wavelength and are available with 100, 200 and 400 micron, 0.22NA fibers.
As always, AKELA can modify these modules to meet specific requirements.
