nLIGHT Launches 400W Passively-Cooled Semiconductor Laser

VANCOUVER, Wash., Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — nLIGHT®, Inc. (NASDAQ: LASR), a global leader in semiconductor and industrial fiber lasers, today announced the introduction of the element® e24i, a 400W fiber-coupled package small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. This revolutionary power density makes the element e24i the optimal diode for high-power laser systems.

“The e24i represents a major step forward in power, brightness, and packaging for a semiconductor laser,” states Michael O’Connor, General Manager of nLIGHT’s Semiconductor Laser Business. “This product enables our customers to scale to new power levels with favorable economics.”

The element e24i greatly simplifies system architectures of direct diode, solid-state, and fiber lasers for industrial, microfabrication, and defense applications. It delivers an impressive 400W of output power at 915nm or 375W at 976nm from a 200µm fiber. “nLIGHT is committed to enabling our customers with differentiated products that further their growth and competitive advantage,” adds O’Connor.

The introduction of the element e24i continues nLIGHT’s leadership in high power laser innovation. See the nLIGHT element e24i at Photonics West, February 5 – 7 in San Francisco, California. Learn more about the element e24i
