diode lasers Ediode lasers from IPG Photonics

IPG is the world’s largest manufacturer of high power diode lasers. Multiple megawatts of rated diode power roll out of our highly automated factories on a quarterly basis. Over a decade of intense innovation and investment results in diodes which are brighter, more reliable, efficient and compact than any competing diode solution.

IPG diodes are available in the 445–465 nm and 790–980 nm range of the near infrared spectrum, where the sweet spots of diode laser performance reside. Our scientists painstakingly perfected the diode design and manufacturing process to push individual device lifetime beyond 100,000 hours. When deployed in ensembles, IPG’s diode solutions exceed the most demanding industrial reliability requirements.

green lasers Egreen lasers from IPG Photonics

IPG CW fiber lasers in the ≤100 W power range typically have fixed wavelengths. Most of these low power models allow the user to select the wavelength over a certain range prior to purchase. For ytterbium lasers, the typical wavelength range is 1030–1090 nm (Yb CW fiber lasers in the range 978–1020 nm are also available); for erbium lasers the range is 1535–1565–nm; for thulium lasers the range is 1.9–2.05 µm. Green lasers operate near 532 ± 18 nm. Raman lasers can supply emission in the 1.1 1.8 µm range. Wavelength-tunable lasers are also available on special order.

IPG's compact, efficient, robust and powerful mid-IR hybrid fiber pumped (fiber-to-bulk hybrid) solid state lasers are the preferred choice for a variety of applications including non-metal processing, non-destructive inspection, non-invasive medical diagnosis, laser scalpel, spectroscopy, remote sensing, imaging and OPO pumping. Defense applications include IR countermeasures, stand-off detection of explosion hazards, eye-safe seekers for smart munitions and covert communications.

nanosecond lasers Enanosecond lasers from IPG Photonics

IPG’s nanosecond fiber lasers are ideal for industrial applications from laser ablation, marking, trimming, scribing, micro-machining, diamond and silicon cutting, to high speed hole drilling. They feature low divergence and can provide the fluence required for high speed marking of both plastics and metals, including highly reflective materials. High power lasers are optimized for surface treatment applications. From UV to mid-IR, from 1 W to 5 kW, the versatility of IPG's pulsed fiber lasers is unparalleled.

picosecond lasers Epicosecond lasers from IPG Photonics

IPG Photonics offers a broad range of industrial grade picosecond and femtosecond pulsed fiber lasers. In comparison to nanosecond lasers, ultrafast is a "cold" process that reduces melt and HAZ, so there is less recast material. Femto and picosecond lasers also produce fewer micro-cracks and overall higher surface quality. These ultrafast lasers are ideal for a wide variety of industrial, medical and scientific applications.

ultrafast lasers Eultrafast lasers from IPG Photonics

Ultrafast or “ultra-short-pulse lasers” with picosecond or femtosecond pulse durations are of tremendous interest for a growing number of commercial applications due to their extremely high peak powers. These high intensities enable precise micromachining together with minimal thermal input to the surrounding material but present a challenge for fiber based delivery and laser architectures. This means that until recently only very bulky, complex multi-stage solid state or disk laser designs were commercially available.
