Erbium-Doped Fibre Lasers, Amplifiers & Broadband Sources   

IPG 1.5 Micron Devices   

The ELR series are single-mode continuous wave (CW) Erbium fibre lasers with powers up to 50 W that provide diffraction limited output in the eye-safe 1535 to 1605 nm spectral range. They offer turnkey operation, compact size, and air-cooled simplicity for unique reliability. They make an ideal IR source for lab applications and researchers can select from a wide range of options including direct (up to 2 kHz) modulation, optical isolation at the output, pumping redundancy, termination and more.
 

Applications

ATTENTION
As with all eye-safe 1530 to 1620 nm lasers, operation generally means that the eye damage threshold is significantly higher than for a 1064 nm laser. Nevertheless, this is a Class IV laser and IPG recommends that appropriate eyewear always be worn, and laser safety procedures followed.
