GLASGOW, Scotland, 22 Dec. 2006. Intense Ltd. in Glasgow, Scotland, is unveiling the Hermes family of high-power laser diodes for high-power uses such as computer-to-plate printing, defense, industrial, and coding and marking applications.
Through the company's patented Quantum Well Intermixing technology, the laser diodes provide brightness, long lifetimes, and high reliability, company officials say.
Intense's Quantum Well Intermixing process allows for the integration of passive areas within the active region of high power laser diodes.
Passive non-absorbing mirrors are created at the facet regions of the laser cavities to avoid catastrophic optical mirror damage (COMD), a problem frequently encountered in typical laser devices. This, combined with the company's proprietary design techniques, results in diodes of superior brightness, longer lifetimes, and increased reliability.
