The new Diode Laser Pump Module PM36/72 combines cutting-edge diode technology with brightness-optimized stacking and homogenization as well as a modular design for advanced adaptability and customization. It is able to deliver a maximum output peak power of 72 kW onto the target. The PM72 with its highly efficient beam shaping and homogenization system offers a high brightness in a smooth beam profile for all operations.

Depending on the number of installed stacks (which can vary from 10 stacks with reduced width to 20 full-width stacks) and the central wavenlength, the output energy can vary from 16 to 72 kW. Brightness values averaged over the whole beam (95% energy content) reach [2.5 ... 5.0] kW cm-2 sr-1.

The beam profile can be chosen to be rectangular or hexagonal. Round profiles can also be realized with minor losses. Since the output is linearly polarized, two PM72 can be polarization-coupled in order to increase the overall brightness. The PM72 can also be part of an integrated system consisting of several Pump Modules and laser diode drivers.

The pump module facilitates the monitoring of important operating parameters like water flow, temperature, humidity and forward voltage. A LAN interface is built in for the data exchange with the pump infrastructure. A suitable control software solution based on Labview can be provided.

The PM72 is mainly used for pumping solid state laser amplifiers. Depending on the pulse length it delivers a pulse energy of up to 230 J (4 ms) in order to build laser amplifiers with more than 10 Joule of output and a repetition rate of up to 100 Hz. Other possible applications are bright IR illumination, material processing or laser cleaning. LASTRONICS also offers all necessary devices such as Laser Diode Drivers, Interlocks, computer controlled user interfaces and all safety installations.
