Press release date: January 29, 2014

Product Design Optimized for Laser TV and Projection Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif., --Oclaro, Inc. NASDAQ: OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of laser based products, today announced the company is in mass production of the HL63193MG, a 638nm red laser diode with 700mW output power, multiple transverse mode and 5.6mm diameter small TO package. This high power red laser diode is targeted at the emerging Laser TV and Projection markets. Oclaro will be showcasing its leading edge laser diode portfolio during the Photonics West show held at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA from February 4-6, 2014 at Oclaro booth #940 in the South Hall.

High power red laser diodes are a critical building block for laser TV and display applications. New projectors require several 10s of Watts of combined red, green and blue laser optical power to meet the customers' expectations brightness and image quality. The Oclaro 700mW red laser diodes enable customers to maximize overall output power without increasing the number of components inside the projector.

With a high Wall Plug Efficiency of approximately 38%, the HL63193MG reduces the electrical power consumption and also the amount of heat which has to be removed from the package, allowing for more compact and integrated designs.

"Oclaro is excited to release this unique laser diode at Photonics West 2014," said Yves LeMaitre, President, Optical Connectivity Business of Oclaro. "We are ready for mass production with this product and believe it will enable new and exciting consumer applications for red lasers. This new laser diode is a result of our industry leadership in chip technology and expertise in delivering red lasers with both high efficiency and high optical output-power."
