Laser Focus World's 2023 Innovator Awards for the laser and optoelectronics industry have been announced on August 1st, 2023. Focuslight’s SP17 & SP18 -- High-Power Diode Laser Side Pumped Modules were recognized among the best by the 2023 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards and won a Bronze award.
SP17 & SP18 -- High-Power Diode Laser Side Pumped Modules
Utilizing Focuslight’s advanced high-power diode lasers as the core component, and employing unique optical design, water flow design, and the ASE (Amplified Spontaneous Emission) effect control method, SP17 & SP18 achieve high-peak-power, high gain, and high uniformity of fluorescence distribution. As the gain increases, the high-peak-power pumping module will generate a serious ASE effect if no corresponding measures are taken, which results in gain saturation and in the end, prevents the module from a high SSG value. SP17 and SP18 side pumped modules take effective measures to inhibit the ASE effect.

Focuslight's SP17 & SP18 -- High-Power Diode Laser Side Pumped Modules
1. High peak power and small signal gain (SSG). SP18 peak power: 5kW, SSG>30; SP17 peak power: 30kW, SSG>55. Focuslight's SP17 and SP18 side-pumped modules take effective measures to inhibit the ASE effect and provide reliable gain modules for high-energy solid-state lasers.
2.Better uniformity of fluorescence distribution. Utilizing the unique optical field homogenization technology of Focuslight makes the high uniformity of fluorescence distribution of SP17 & SP18 exceed 90%, which in the end, restrains the thermal effect of the side pumped module and provides a high-quality line beam for DPSSL.
