LightPath Technologies - New Product Announcement IsoBeam(TM) Fusion Collimator
Jan 21, 2008 (08:01 AM EST)


ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LightPath Technologies, Inc. , LightPath Technologies is pleased to introduce the IsoBeam(TM) Fusion Collimator. This new collimator combines the high power capabilities of LightPath's Fiber Fusion collimators with a high power optical isolator to prevent harmful back reflections from reaching the laser.

The IsoBeam(TM) is specifically designed for use with fiber lasers up to 30W, where reducing back reflections is a critical necessity to prevent laser damage. The IsoBeam's feature very low insertion loss, high isolation, minimal return loss, and excellent reliability and environmental stability. While there are eight standard IsoBeam designs available, LightPath can also customize the designs for customer's specific requirements.

"Fiber lasers that are used for laser marking and etching can really benefit from the IsoBeam's ability to shield the laser from unwanted back- reflected light. Without this protection, fiber lasers could easily be damaged at high peak powers. Test results from our initial customers have been very favorable," said Jim Magos, Senior Vice President -- Sales & Marketing.

LightPath Technologies Inc. will be exhibiting the IsoBeam in Booth 632 at SPIE Photonics West Conference in San Jose, California, January 22nd through January 24th.
