NoIR LaserShields has had ten of their existing filters for laser safety CE-approved. These are the: 10, 50, 60, 90, 92, 5032, 6032, RT1, RT2 and YG4.
NoIR also revealed, at the recent Laser World of Photonics exhibition, a breakthrough polymer filter for Holmium-doped fibre lasers operating between 2 and 3 microns – the HOY.
NoIR have been manufacturing high-quality internationally-certified safety eyewear for the protection of laser users in a broad range of fields and applications for many years now, offering protection from:
- UV, visible, and IR lasers
- Multiple waveband devices
- Therapeutic and cosmetic treatments (Patients and Clinicians)
- Laser pens (Pilots and Police)

AKELA Laser Corporation has announced 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 1030 to 1950 nm. These entry-level modules, which are aimed at volume applications, 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.
AKELA’s line of long wavelength high power laser diodes sets the standard in the industry. No other company provides the high powers or the wide range of wavelengths. These products are ideal for military and other eye safe applications, dermatology applications such as body shaping, cellulite removal, skin rejuvenation, wrinkle removal or any other application dependent upon water or fat absorption peaks. In addition, these devices can be used as replacements for standard wavelengths pumping holmium or thulium fiber lasers.

The Elliot Scientific June newsletter is now available as a PDF. In this issue we look at Energetiq’s EQ99CAL – a calibrated version of its Laser Driven Light Source, Nufern’s Holmium fibre, the Nomad portable fibre optic thermometer from Neoptix, IRphotonics iGuide broadband fibre optics, and more.

Nufern have introduced two Holmium doped fibres, increasing the operational wavelength of their standard range of active fibres to 2150 nm. The result of years of research and development, the fibres feature a double-clad design and the recently developed NuCOATTM coating technology, which affords greater durability and longer life.
The eye-safe Ho-doped standard fibres available through Elliot Scientific come in two geometrical configurations — a 25 µm core diameter with a 250 µm clad diameter, and a 40 µm core diameter with a 400 µm clad diameter. These fibres achieve 60% efficiency when resonantly pumped with a Thulium fibre laser. The optimal operating wavelength range for Ho-doped fibre is between 2000 and 2150 nm, making them an ideal choice for a variety of medical lasers as well as power scaling for a host of military laser applications such as LIDAR.
