Oclaro Enters Laser-Based Cosmetic Skin Treatment Market with its High-Power Single-Emitter Laser Diodes

Oclaro Continues to Expand Presence in High-Growth Consumer Markets With Cost-Effective and Reliable, High-volume Manufacturing

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR), a tier-one provider of optical communications and laser solutions, today announced that its 1470nm laser diodes, which are selling successfully into the eye-safe laser market, are now being targeted at new high-volume skin treatment consumer markets. The 1470nm single-emitter lasers, which are showcased at the Photonics West show this week, deliver the power, reliability and stable performance necessary in the cosmetic consumer market and Oclaro's manufacturing excellence is bringing this technology down to mainstream price points.

"Oclaro continues to execute on its business strategy to bring proven technology into new high-growth markets that need the economies of scale and expertise that Oclaro can provide," said Yves Le Maitre, Executive Vice President and Division Manager at Oclaro. "Our extensive manufacturing infrastructure enables us to bring cutting-edge laser technology into the hands of consumers, and lasers for cosmetic skin treatment is just one example of the types of markets we can now effectively serve."

About the 1470nm Laser Diodes

New consumer applications in the cosmetic skin treatment market, such as wrinkle reduction, are driving increased demand for cost-effective laser diode solutions.  By leveraging Oclaro's Indium Phosphide technology, that was developed and perfected in the telecom industry, into 1470nm single laser diodes, Oclaro not only delivers the right product set, but it can also scale to volume quickly to meet the price points that are required to be successful in this market. 

The 1470nm single-emitter laser diodes leverage proven Oclaro technology that is currently being used in eye-safe applications in the defense, materials processing and medical markets. The laser diode emits 2W output power at 1470nm from a 90um stripe and is available on a submount, a CMount or in a 105um fiber coupled configuration. The fiber coupled version is built on Oclaro's widely used platform for single emitter fiber laser pump modules and tailored configurations with fast and slow axis lenses for beam confinement address specific high-volume consumer applications. In addition, the laser diodes have demonstrated extreme reliability after being life-tested for more than 5000 hours at 10.5A without any fails.
