The Oclaro Next-Generation Orion Fiber-Coupled Diode Laser Raises the Bar for Performance, Cost and Reliability for Solid State Lasers
Date:1/12/2010

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR), a provider of optical components for industrial applications, today unveiled the industry's lowest price / highest performance 8xx nm fiber-coupled laser diode and will be showcasing the new Orion™ platform at Photonics West in San Francisco, Calif.  The latest Orion fiber-coupled diode laser is one-half the size and 1.5x the brightness of competitive products in its category and delivers 30W of power at 808nm and 35W of power at 880nm wavelengths, with 95% of the light contained within a 0.15NA from a 200um core diameter fiber.

"Until now, there has been no product to effectively serve the mid-power fiber-coupled market with the right level of brightness, low cost, robustness and reliability," said Scott Dunbar, General Manager of High Power Laser Diode Portfolio for Oclaro.  "The Orion platform is designed to meet all of these needs and allows DPSSL systems to maintain their competitive edge against fiber laser systems."

The latest Orion platform is the first integrated product resulting from Oclaro's acquisition of Newport Spectra-Physics high power laser diodes business.  By combining the cutting-edge technologies in device design and proprietary E2 facet passivation from Oclaro's Zurich facility with the advanced packaging technologies from Oclaro's Tucson facility, the high-brightness Orion platform delivers unmatched performance and reliability.

About the Newest Orion Platform

The Orion platform serves as the ideal solution for the DPSS laser, direct diode medical and industrial materials processing applications that demand higher power and brightness, lower cost and smaller form factors.

  • The breakthrough form-factor design allows customers to design smaller solid state lasers at lower cost and with more functionality.
  • Features advanced hermetic packaging, which greatly improves the robustness and reliability of the package.
  • Delivers 2X output power over the previous Orion family product with 30W at 808nm and 35W at 880 nm from a 200 um fiber.
  • Takes advantage of the state-of-the art 'mini-bar' design of the Orion platform to produce unparalleled brightness of >1.5mW/cm2*sr, facilitating new architectures and easier system tolerances.

With the release of the latest Orion fiber-coupled diode laser, Oclaro now offers two next generation product platforms to serve the entire mid-power fiber-coupled market segment.  The Orion platform offers the perfect solution for the sub-40W market, while the Prosario™ platform addresses the 40W+ market, resulting in the most extensive product offering of high brightness, fiber-coupled diodes in the industry today.
