Lumics GmbH – Berlin is pleased to announce the 1940 nm laser diode source for medical customers. This product is based on the field proven LuOcean Series and delivers at 1940nm an output power of 10W. It is the world’s first laser module for this wavelength which delivers that power level out of a standard silica fiber with only 200 µm fiber core, NA 0.22. The important water absorption peak at 1940 nm has a five times higher absorption rate compared to the peak at 1470 nm which allows five times lower penetration depth in tissue and is therefore ideally suited for surgery.
