"The past several months have yielded several breakthroughs that rapidly took us from 65% efficiency in a 4 W single-emitter (see related story) to over 71% in a 50 W laser bar," said Tom Earles, Alfalight's CTO.

Emitting at 976 nm, the aluminium-free devices have been developed under DARPA's super high efficiency diode sources (SHEDS) program.
"We will integrate these laser diode designs into our next generation of commercial products," said Earles.
