Coherent NIR laser modules with high output power

Scheme

Laser sources with high coherence like DFB, DBR lasers or lasers with an external cavity are mounted in a miniaturized master-oscillator power-amplifier configuration, for example. The amplification is realized by a tapered amplifier, whereas the beam shaping is done using micro lenses. A subsequent coupling into optical fibers is possible, too.
