5 Type of Lasers Comparison: Performance And Application Characteristics

Laser is one of the essential core components in the modern laser processing system.

With the development of laser processing technology, lasers are also developing, and many new lasers have appeared.

The early laser processing lasers were mainly high-power CO2 gas lasers and lamp-pumped solid-state YAG lasers.

The development trend is mainly to improve the laser power, but when the laser power meets certain requirements, the beam quality of the laser is paid attention to, and the development of the laser is transferred to improving the beam quality.

Semiconductor lasers, fiber lasers and disk lasers have been developed successively, which has made rapid development in the fields of laser material processing, medical treatment, aerospace, automobile manufacturing and so on.

CO2 laser, Nd: YAG laser, semiconductor laser, disk laser and fiber laser are the five most common lasers in the market. What are their characteristics and application scope?

CO2 laser

Application: 

The laser wavelength of the CO2 laser is 10.6um, and the absorption coefficient of metal is low.

It is generally suitable for cutting non-metallic materials and welding metal materials.

It can be widely used in welding applications in aviation, electronic instruments, machinery, automobile fields.

Nd: YAG laser

Application: 

YAG laser has a high absorption coefficient to metal, which can be used for metal cutting, welding, marking applications.

Because of its high energy, high peak power, compact structure, firm and durable, reliable performance characteristics, it is widely used in industry, national defense, medical treatment, scientific research and other fields.

Semiconductor laser

Application: due to the high uniformity of laser beam and poor penetration, the semiconductor laser is not suitable for metal cutting, but its spot characteristics are suitable for metal surface treatment, such as cladding, hardening, 3D printing, etc.

It can be widely used in aerospace, medical, automotive fields.

Disk laser

Application: disc laser is a spatial optical path coupling structure, so the beam quality is very high

It is suitable for laser material applications such as metal cutting, welding, marking, laser cladding, hardening and 3D printing.

It is widely used in automobile manufacturing, aerospace, precision machinery, 3C electronics  fields.

Fiber laser

Application: due to high electro-optic conversion efficiency, good metal absorption coefficient and high beam quality, fiber laser can be used for metal cutting, welding, marking, metal surface treatment applications.

It is widely used in aerospace, automobile manufacturing, 3C electronics, medical fields.

Laser technology is widely used in the industry, but which kind of laser product is more suitable still needs to be selected according to the performance and application of each laser.

Here is a table to show you the characteristics and applications of the above-mentioned 5 types of lasers.

Performance and application comparison of 5 type of lasers

Compared with traditional CO2 lasers and YAG solid-state lasers, semiconductor lasers have obvious technical advantages, such as small volume, lightweight, high efficiency, low energy consumption, long service life and high metal absorption of semiconductor lasers.

With the continuous development of semiconductor laser technology, other solid-state lasers based on semiconductor lasers, such as fiber lasers, direct output fiber semiconductor lasers and disk lasers, are also developing rapidly.

Among them, fiber lasers have developed rapidly, especially rare earth doped fiber lasers, which have been widely used in the fields of optical fiber communication, optical fiber sensing, laser material processing and so on.
