Coherent to Showcase a Broad Portfolio of Product and Technology Innovations at Photonics West and BiOS Expo


PITTSBURGH, Jan. 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Coherent Corp. (Nasdaq: COHR), a global leader in materials, networking, and lasers, announced today that it will exhibit industry-leading products and capabilities at SPIE Photonics West, Jan. 31-Feb. 2 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Booth #4805 (Hall D, Exhibit Level), and at BiOS Expo Jan. 28-29, part of Photonics West, in Booth #8320 (Hall F, Exhibit Level North). Coherent will showcase its broad portfolio of products and technology innovations that are enabling a wide range of applications in industrial, communications, electronics, and instrumentation markets. Coherent thought leaders will present at industry events, workshops, and technical sessions.



  • 10 W HyperRapid NXT 266 nm picosecond lasers: The industry’s first laser-based solution capable of ablating a microscopic channel around OLED displays, maximizing the active area of the display.
  • 150 W Monaco infrared lasers: The lasers output more than double the power and pulse energy of existing configurations, enabling high-precision cutting of large glass panels in very high volumes to produce large OLED screens.
  • 50 W pump laser diodes: The industry’s first commercially available 50 W pump lasers, enabling high-power industrial fiber laser designs with fewer pump laser diodes.
  • 905 nm triple-junction edge-emitting semiconductor lasers: The lasers efficiently emit up to 100 W of optical power in nanosecond pulses. The lasers are qualified to the stringent JEDEC JESD22-A10x standard for industrial applications.
  • Diffractive optical elements (DOEs) for high-power industrial lasers: The DOEs leverage a proprietary nanoimprint technology and design simulation tools to achieve very high optical efficiency and extremely uniform laser beams in kilowatt-class industrial lasers.



Test and Measurement: WaveShaper 4000B and WaveAnalyzer 200A (Booth #4805)

Coherent will demonstrate spectral shaping using a WaveShaper 4000B Programmable Optical Processor and a WaveAnalyzer 200A Portable Optical Spectrum Analyzer. The instruments enable temporal shaping of ultrashort laser pulses in medical and micromachining applications.
