The BraggStar M uses a coherence-enhanced optical design at the dominant FBG-writing wavelength of 248 nm, resulting in significantly higher spatial coherence compared to conventional broad-use excimer lasers. This new laser also features the twin advantages of a compact design and ease of operation. Moreover, the new BraggStar M is based on the field-proven COMPex platform that is specifically designed for high reliability. The success of the high-reliability COMPex platform is evidenced by the more than 2,500 installed units worldwide.
The BraggStar M is ideal for creating FBGs for a broad range of applications. These include reflectors in fiber lasers and reference wavelength stabilization in wavelength division multiplex (WDM) telecom apps, as well as fiber sensing applications.
