Jenoptik introduces new products at Photonics West 2013.

Jenoptik's Femtosecond Laser JenLas® D2.fs for Precise Micro-Processing and Medical Technology.

Jenoptik's Femtosecond Laser JenLas® D2.fs for Precise Micro-Processing and Medical Technology.

On February 5-7, 2013, Jenoptik will be presenting new products and advanced technologies in the fields of optics, lasers and infrared technology in San Francisco. Furthermore, the Group is the main sponsor of the SPIE Startup Challenge 2013 to support young entrepreneurs.

In the field of laser material processing, Jenoptik will present the femtosecond laser JenLas® D2.fs with improved parameters. Maintaining stable beam quality, the output power and pulse repetition rate of the laser have been increased to allow for faster material processing in industry and medical technology. In addition, the 1 kilowatt fiber laser JenLas® fiber cw 1000 for application in material processing, in particular for non-contact cutting and welding of metals with high flexibility and speed will be presented.

As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of optical systems, Jenoptik will also showcase new ultra-precision optics processed using Ion Beam Figuring (IBF) at Photonics West. The new F-Theta lens series Silverline complements Jenoptik’s portfolio of full fused-silica lenses for micro-processing with high-power fiber and picosecond lasers.

In the field of sensor systems, Jenoptik will introduce the high-definition thermography camera IR-TCM HD 1024 to the US market. The handheld camera allows for the detailed and precise analysis of temperature distributions, in particular in the case of large objects or large focusing distances.

Jenoptik supports the entrepreneur competition SPIE Startup Challenge.

This year Jenoptik will again be the lead sponsor of the annual entrepreneur competition of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. SPIE fellow Jay Kumler, responsible for the U.S. activities of the Jenoptik Optical Systems division, will be judge member for the SPIE Startup Challenge 2013 competition, which serves to support entrepreneurial projects.

Aspiring entrepreneurs from the field of optical and photonic technologies participating in the SPIE Startup competition will pitch their innovative business ideas to a team of expert judges.

”The SPIE Startup Challenge has become an outstanding opportunity to see early-stage innovation in progress,” says Jay Kumler. ”Partnering with SPIE as lead sponsor for the past two years is one tool that Jenoptik uses to encourage entrepreneurship in our Group and in our industry. The event fits our values and our culture very well.“

The ten finalists will receive sponsorship opportunity to attend the Entrepreneurship Academies organized by the University of California. The top three finalists will also receive a financial prize.

Jenoptik's Femtosecond Laser JenLas® D2.fs for Precise Micro-Processing and Medical Technology.

Jenoptik has improved the laser parameters of the JenLas® D2.fs. The pulse repetition rate has been increased to over 500 kilohertz and the output power by 25 percent. Thereby the laser has retained its superb pulse and beam characteristics as well as its stability. Furthermore, the advantages of the thin-disk laser are preserved, namely very short pulses combined with high pulse energy. The combination of the higher pulse repetition rate and increased output power means more throughput and faster processing for industrial use. This enhanced productivity provides the user with decisive technological and economical advantages.

Another feature of the diode-pumped JenLas® D2.fs is the exceptional flexibility of the laser parameters. Variable power levels and pulse repetition rates can be set according to the application requirements. Special attention has been paid to ensure a simple integration of the JenLas® D2.fs into laser machines and laser systems. This means that, if required, the laser can be parameterized using software or hardware. Before shipping, various tests and checks are performed to ensure reliable functioning of the laser in typical usage, storage, and transport conditions.

Jenoptik’s femtosecond laser can be used in micro-processing as well as medical applications, where minimal thermal heat input and excellent cutting quality are of advantage. Examples for such applications are cutting in the stent manufacturing, precision drilling of injectors, and the processing of displays.

Cutting and Welding of Metallic Materials with Jenoptik’s 1 Kilowatt Fiber Laser.

At Photonics West 2013, Jenoptik shows its JenLas® fiber cw 1000 fiber laser with an output power of 1000 Watt. The introduction of this OEM laser will further expand the range of the outstanding lasers, offered by Jenoptik’s Lasers & Material Processing division for use in industrial material processing.

The JenLas® fiber cw 1000 guarantees high productivity and impressive processing quality, especially during cutting and welding of metallic materials of different thicknesses and geometries. A deep understanding of every level of laser technology combined with a broad experience in the relevant applications guarantees an easy and flexible integration of Jenoptik’s lasers into the respective processes of the companies’ clients worldwide.

The advantages of laser welding with a fiber laser compared to conventional mechanical or chemical processes such as gluing, soldering, or hot plate welding are flexibility and speed. The welded joints made by fiber lasers are extremely strong and components even with unusual dimensions can be processed quickly and reliably. The non-contact laser cutting and laser welding with JenLas® fiber cw 1000 offers the operator new possibilities and perspectives.

At Photonics West 2013, a range of other Jenoptik’s laser products will also be presented to the show visitors. Those include further developments from the areas of semiconductor materials, diode and solid-state lasers as well as laser machines for plastics, metals, glass and photovoltaic applications.
