Press release date: January 31, 2014

Somerset, New Jersey — OFS, a leading designer, manufacturer, and supplier of innovative fiber laser components, today announced the launch of its new TrueLase™ Double Clad Optical Fibers for high power fiber laser applications.

These new OFS fibers are TrueLase Ytterbium Doped Cladding Pumped Fiber (Yb 20/400 LMA DCF) and TrueLase Passive Double Clad fiber (20/400 LMA DCF), both of which are matched for splice optimization and laser cavity efficiency.

“This new fiber family was designed to provide high clad absorption and fiber efficiency. Improved manufacturing processes also have resulted in tight core concentricity control, and uniform fiber properties across the draw. Those improvements translate into a reliable fiber laser solution for our customers”, stated Dr. Thierry Taunay, Fiber Design and Development Senior Scientist, OFS.

“This fiber development was driven by an increasing demand for a reliable fiber supply from our customers in the rapidly growing fiber laser market space. OFS has the fiber expertise and fabrication technology needed to meet that demand,” commented JoAnn Coyne, General Manager, OFS.
