Laser Components, SemiNex Begin New Partnership

CHELSMFORD, England, Oct. 4, 2010 - Laser Components (UK) Ltd. announced a distribution partnership with Peabody, Mass.-based SemiNex Corp, a diode laser supplier.  The UK company will deliver the US-based company's long-wavelength high-power laser diodes at 14xx and 15xx wavelengths. Standard wavelengths are 1450-, 1470-, 1535- and 1550 nm, with output power per single-chip as high as 6 W.  Available in standard packaging, the chips include a compact fiber-coupled module, C-, B- or sub-mount.  For improved reliability at high operating power, engineers have developed "Laser Engine," which uses a high-power single-emitter laser in a low-cost packaging with radial heat sink and fan. 

Laser Components manufacture components and services for the laser and optoelectronics industries.  For more information, visit: www.lasercomponents.co.uk
