II‐VI Incorporated (Nasdaq: IIVI), a leader in high-power semiconductor lasers, today announced that it has won the Strategic Supplier Award from Shenzhen Xinghan Laser Technology Co. Ltd.
The award was presented in recognition of II-VI’s outstanding performance as a supplier of high-power laser diode chips for Xinghan’s fiber-coupled pump laser modules. The presentation took place at LASER World of Photonics China 2020, held July 3-5 in Shanghai.
“II-VI continues to be a strategic supplier of high-power laser diode chips with a strong record of technical innovation, quality, and delivery performance,” said Shaofeng Zhou, CEO and President of Shenzhen Xinghan Laser Technology. “We look forward to growing our relationship with II-VI by leveraging its portfolio of high-power laser components, one of the most complete in the industry.”
“Xinghan’s award is an honor and a strong recognition of II-VI’s ability to deliver high-power semiconductor laser chips with high quality and at scale,” said Dr. Karlheinz Gulden, Senior Vice President, Laser Devices and Systems Business Unit. “II-VI’s laser diodes’ output power is market-leading and enables industrial laser designs with fewer pump modules, which lowers the cost of cutting, welding, brazing, and laser additive manufacturing.”
II-VI’s pump laser diodes are offered as bare dies and mounted chips. II-VI’s broad portfolio of components for industrial lasers includes seed lasers, acousto-optic modulators, fiber Bragg gratings, kilowatt pump and signal combiners, as well as IBS-coated laser optics and micro-optics for high-power isolators.
