Tapered Amplifiers

Amplifiers for more laser output power

  • Wavelengths 660 nm .. 1190 nm
  • Powers up to 3 W
  • On heat sink for TA pro or BoosTA pro
  • Exceptionally high brightness
  • Nearly diffraction limited output beam


Tapered amplifier (TA) diodes combine the "best of both worlds": They amplify laser radiation into a nearly diffraction limited beam to powers that would destroy the facets of normal laser diodes. At the same time the spectral properties of the master laser are preserved. TOPTICA offers TA chips separately, but also integrates them into convenient laser systems (TA pro and BoosTA pro).
