IPG’s NEW Thulium Continuous Wave (CW) fiber lasers are available in air-cooled units, 10-50 W or water-cooled modules, 50-200 W. These compact modules can be purchased for single-mode or multi-mode operation with wavelength range of 1900-2050 nm. IPG’s thulium modules are attractively priced for OEM’s and integrators and serve a wide range of medical, materials processing and laser pumping applications.
“Eye-safe” operation generally means that the laser radiation is in the wavelength range that is strongly absorbed in the eye's cornea and lens and therefore cannot reach the significantly more sensitive retina. Nevertheless, IPG recommends that the end user consider all safety precautions required for the laser type, medium and classification. Appropriate eyewear must be worn and laser safety procedures must be followed.
