Photonics West, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA. – OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer, and supplier of innovative fiber optic products will showcase its new TrueXMF Yb 200/375 Optical Fiber and TrueXMA Multimode Amplifier Module at the Photonics West Exposition being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from 4 through 6 February 2020.

OFS developed the TrueXMF Yb 200/375 Optical Fiber to meet the growing demand for pulsed fiber lasers used in industrial surface treatment applications. TrueXMF Yb 200/375 Optical Fiber enables fiber laser manufacturers to build their own pulsed fiber lasers. It features an ultra-large multimode core which enables kilowatt average power, high pulse energy amplification with low nonlinearity and was designed for high efficiency and low thermal load. OFS high-volume manufacturing processes ensure lot-to-lot consistency.

The TrueXMA Multimode Amplifier Module is an extension of the TrueXMF Optical Fiber allowing customers the ability to rapidly protype their own pulsed fiber laser design providing a seamless transition into mass production. Both the TrueXMA Module and TrueXMF Optica Fiber are available for immediate purchase.

Phil Familletti, OFS Product Manager, states “We’ve engineered this fiber toward much lower heat loads and also more efficient pump absorption, enabled by the greater index contrast of low- index claddings when compared to a glass-clad approaches. The design is therefore compatible with traditional high-NA pump combining and has demonstrated preservation of low-divergence and speckle-free signals through long kW-class amplifier lengths.”
