High Power Diode Laser Sources and Their Impact on Industrial, Medical, and Military Laser Industrie

MEETINGS & FORUMS PUBLICATION—1 July, 2006, 66 pages


High power semiconductor laser diodes are used in several different market segments today. The technology continues to advance and improvements in efficiency and power are reported each year. Semiconductor laser diodes are used either directly or indirectly to enable new applications or as a replacement for older technology approaches. This report examines practical implementations and limitations for lasers in the 100 W to 100 kW range and roadmaps and developments anticipated over the next five years.
