Lightel Exhibiting at Photonics West

RENTON, Wash., December 17, 2018 -- Lightel Exhibiting at Photonics West

Lightel is pleased to be showing at this year's SPIE Photonics West convention in San Francisco from February 5th to the 7th where we will be displaying our latest high power fiber optic products including end- and side- pump combiners, laser head delivery systems, fiber end caps, circulators, isolators and pump protectors.

This year we are introducing our Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) mirrors. FBG mirrors are distributed reflectors fabricated in an optical fiber that can be utilized to produce a laser cavity in a fiber laser. Lightel now offers FBG mirrors that have been optimized to address the requirements of low noise and high efficiency fiber laser applications. Lightel’s FBG mirrors feature low thermal slope, precise wavelength matching with a wide reflectivity range. Our process also allows us to fabricate FBG mirrors on a large variety of standard, custom or harsh environment fibers. In addition, our FBG mirrors can be delivered in our high-power thermal dissipative package (also provides mechanical and shock protection and reduced wavelength drift) or simply recoated with a rugged low index polymer. Lightel can also write the FBG mirror on the output fiber of the pump combiner, thereby eliminating a splice, increasing the fiber laser assembly reliability and reducing assembly time.

Also new this year are our high power laser combiners which are used to combine several solid state or fiber lasers into a multimode transmission fiber to achieve a laser power output in the range of several kilowatts to 10 kilowatts. This laser combiner features high coupling efficiency and power handling and is available in custom configurations and beam profiles.

Lightel will be also be showing an innovative adapter for our popular DI-1000 inspection scope which allows the user the view the endface of connectors supporting up to 1000 micron core fibers. Ideal for medical and other high power applications, the device can support SMA, FC, SC and many other connector types.

Finally, Lightel will be displaying the latest advancements on our workstation products suite including the CW-7000 Combiner Workstation and the GPST-1000 Universal Fiber Coating Stripper.

You can find us in Booth 4258 where we will be happy to answer any questions and discuss your product needs..
