"We partnered with Oclaro because it delivered the technology and reliable manufacturing excellence we needed, and also worked closely with us to design the best solution for our next generation P.L.E.A.S.E.® products," said Thomas Bragagna, CTO at Pantec Biosolutions. "As this market continues to expand, we are confident that only a world-class supplier such as Oclaro will enable us to establish a clear leadership position in a space that is poised for explosive growth in the future."
About Oclaro Laser Diode Bars
Oclaro developed a conductively cooled 9xx nm laser diode bar primarily designed for QCW pumping of miniaturized solid state lasers, which is what Pantec required for its P.L.E.A.S.E platform. Oclaro's QCW operation enabled Pantec to develop a compact laser device due to its low cooling requirements, small footprint and extremely high pulse power.
Oclaro laser diode bars feature a highly efficient two sided cooling setup of the 10x12x5mm(3) small footprint diode assembly, which allows for output peak power levels as high as 320W at 300A drive current, 5ms pulse duration and 10% duty cycle. The Er:YAG laser systems developed by Pantec are pumped between 0.1 and 10ms pulse duration and 1-20% duty cycle, making them attractive for medical applications such as transdermal delivery of drugs from large peptides up to whole antibodies, since molecules of this mass can't penetrate passively into the dermis.
To deliver the highest level of reliability, the Oclaro high power laser diodes feature the Oclaro E2 mirror passivation process, which protects the front facet of the bar against
