SYLMAR, Calif., 28 Jan. 2007. QPC Lasers Inc., parent of Quintessence Photonics Corporation, has partnered with Northrop Grumman Space Technology Cutting Edge Optronics for integration of QPC's high-power semiconductor lasers. The integrated semiconductor laser modules and systems was displayed for the first time ever at the QPC exhibit at Photonics West in San Jose, Calif.
The integrated lasers include QPC's proprietary BrightLase and Internal Grating semiconductor laser technology and expand QPC's product line to include high-power water-cooled laser modules and turnkey systems.
The semiconductor laser modules feature high spectral brightness and stability for high-efficiency pumping of Er:YAG high-energy lasers at eye-safe wavelengths for directed energy weapons development. The fiber-coupled semiconductor laser systems offer a turnkey solution with high spatial and spectral brightness in the near infrared and eye-safe regime for industrial, medical, and defense markets.
