IPG Photonics revise Fibre Laser and Amplifier ranges

IPG Photonics YLM LaserIPG Photonics has published new datasheets for certain models in their broad range of 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 µm fibre lasers and amplifiers. Our web pages for these products have been updated to reflect the changes and have also been redesigned to make it easier to compare the different models that we offer.

These reliable diode-pumped amplifiers and lasers use Ytterbium, Erbium, or Thulium doped optical fibres as gain media. All are compact, air-cooled and use direct diode pumping for optimum efficiency.

IPG designed and manufactured, these commercial/non-telecommunications lasers are used in a broad range of OEM and lab applications such as graphics and imaging, marking and materials processing, remote sensing and research, medical and defence.

Elliot Scientific offers continuous wave (CW), Q-switched pulsed, linearly polarised, tunable and single frequency diode-pumped solid-state fibre lasers, as well as diode-pumped fibre amplifiers, with up to 20 W output power.

IPG’s advanced fibre devices are a quantum leap forward, providing the best in diode-pumped solid-state reliability and performance. To determine the ideal fibre laser for your application, please contact us.


Elliot Scientific to distribute IPG Photonics’ low power CW and single frequency fibre lasers

IPG Photonics YLM Laser

IPG Photonics YLM LaserElliot Scientific Ltd. recently announced its agreement to distribute IPG Photonics’ low, up to 20 W, power continuous wave (CW) and single frequency diode-pumped fibre lasers within the UK and Ireland.

IPG Photonics’ advanced commercial/non-telecommunications fibre laser devices are a quantum leap forward and provide the best in diode-pumped solid-state reliability and performance for a broad range of applications.

Elliot Scientific offers three series of rare earth doped fibre lasers that are more efficient, more cost effective, and more than just a ‘like for like’ replacement of lamp or diode pumped crystal lasers. The range comprises:

Ytterbium doped fibre lasers – Light output ranges from 1062 to 1075 nm and these lasers provide a highly compact and mobile light source for a number of scientific and medical applications including optical tweezing. They are available as continuous wave, randomly or linearly polarized models with a standard sub-nm and single frequency, below 50 kHz, linewidths.

Erbium fibre doped lasers – Operating between 1535 and 1600, nm which includes the important telecommunications C and L wavebands, these single frequency lasers are ideal choices for interferometry, coherent beam combining, free-space communication and sensing applications due to their less than 50 kHz linewidth. Linear and randomly polarized options with a standard sub-nm linewidth are also available.

Thulium doped fibre lasers – With an output wavelength within 1800 to 2050 nm, these standard linewidth lasers are ideal for the laboratory, medical and industrial communities who require a wavelength selectable diffraction limited beam, turnkey maintenance-free operation, single mode fibre delivery, compact size and air-cooled modular simplicity.
