Laser diode systems with expansion- matched heat sinks provide reliability and a price-to-performance ratio that makes them suitable for pumping disk lasers and other pumping applications. Diode-pumped solid-state lasers (DPSSLs) are established tools in many industries based on their low cost of ownership, high efficiency, and high reliability. The latest advancements have enabled scaling to several tens of kilowatts continuous-wave (CW), which make a wide range of applications possible, ranging from material processing to airborne defense systems. High-power laser diode modules with power up to 12 kW CW are available for optical pumping of thin disk lasers. This family of pump modules is based on a novel platform that solves most the problems associated with traditional micro-channel cooler stacks. Source
