November 7--IPG Laser has installed a diode-pumped 20kW Ytterbium fiber laser in Berlin under a contract from BAM.

November 7--IPG Laser GmbH, a subsidiary of IPG Photonics Corp., has installed a diode-pumped 20kW Ytterbium fiber laser in Berlin under a contract award from BAM (the German Federal Institute for Materials Research & Testing).

BAM, the national materials and chemicals technological institute of Germany, purchased a YLR-20000 with centeral emission wavelength of 1070 nm and beam quality of less than 11 mm x mrad. The unit is water cooled and delivers 20 kW of output power through a flexible fiber having a 200-micron core. The laser will be used for materials processing research on alloys and steel.
