Lumics specialised in pump lasers, currently 980nm pump laser diodes and pump laser modules in a standard 14-pin butterfly package (named LU980Mxxx) with a power output range from 80-250mW.
The next generation product will also feature smaller module footprints and coolerless versions as well as planar waveguide based pump modules and 13xxnm/14xxnm pump lasers for EDFA and TDFA devices.
Lumics offers a variety of chips on submount with extremely high output power and the utmost possible quality and reliability.
