Laser World of Photonics
LASER World of PHOTONICS is the international trade fair for Photonics Components, Systems and Applications. Together with the World of Photonics Congress, the fair unites research and industry and promotes the use and ongoing development in the Photonics industry.
When: 24 - 27 June 2019
Where: Munich, Germany
Our presence at the exhibition: Diamond GmbH, Hall B1 Booth# 515
Launch of the new DIAMOND PSm mating adapter
High power pump lasers utilizing multimode fibers require a low loss fiber optic connector to ensure ultimate performance.
The newest DIAMOND PSm mating adapter is built around a floating Tungsten carbide sleeve, along with copper wings to create a perfect state-of-the-art connection between two Diamond E-2000 PSm connectors. The copper wings connect to the heat sink holder when inserted and lower the temperature gradient close to the fiber, improving power resistance of the assembly.
The new Diamond PSm mating adapter resists up to 100W of power when combined with Diamond E-2000 PSm connectors and a MM 105/125 0.22NA fiber.
Tungsten carbide thermal dissipation is ca 50x higher than that of the ceramic materials and ca 5x higher than that of the stainless steel. When used in mating adapters with a micron tolerance, the power dissipation improves dramatically. Diamond is a specialist of hard material and has been using tungsten carbide (WC) for over 30 years ago as a ferrule material and mating adapter sleeve.
