Shimadzu Corporation Releases HK-5650 Fiber-Coupled Blue Direct Diode Laser

Shimadzu Corporation has expanded its product line of laser products by releasing the HK-5650 fiber-coupled blue direct diode laser and also by starting sales of Oxide brand Frequad series continuous wave 266 nm DUV solid-state lasers. In anticipation of the expected sharp expansion in the global market for materials processing lasers, the company has been focusing efforts on establishing a business supplying lasers with next-generation functionality used for processing materials. As a result, the company developed the HK-5650 10 W output fiber-coupled blue direct diode laser, as a strategic product. The direct diode laser offers the advantages of small size, high electrical-to-optical conversion efficiency, and potentially low costs from mass production. However, increasing the output requires a large light emitting surface, which reduces brightness. Also, due to the infrared light it produces, conventionally its applications have been limited to heating or welding plastics. This product offers 16 times higher brightness than previous models at the short 450 nm wavelength, where absorption by metals is high, and has an especially small spot size. Therefore, it is ideal for applications such as microfabrication of highly reflective and highly thermally conductive materials such as gold and copper, which has been increasing in demand due to the diversification of processed materials and the miniaturization of smart phones and other electronic devices. It is also ideal for 3D printers, which attracted considerable interest in recent years. Furthermore, research is being conducted on using it for next-generation lighting applications, where it is ideally suited laser excitation source for white phosphor. The fiber-coupled design allows transmission flexibility for a high degree of freedom and superior general applicability.
