Rogers Corp.'s Power Electronics Solutions (PES) group plans a strong presence at the upcoming SPIE Photonics West Conference and Exhibition, set for February 13-18, 2016 in San Francisco’s famed Moscone Center. Photonics West ( is the world’s largest event for lasers, photonics, and biomedical optics products and technologies, with two exhibitions and a comprehensive technical conference. The show is expected to draw more than 50,000 attendees and will feature more than 4000 technical papers.

Rogers at Booth 309

Representatives from Rogers Power Electronics Solutions (PES) group will be on hand at Photonics West Booth 309 to share insights on the company’s latest thermal management solutions, including its innovative curamik® liquid and passive cooling products. Curamik coolers include CoolPerformance and Cool Performance Plus, CoolPower, and CoolEasy product lines. Active water-cooled CoolPerformance and passive CoolEasy products are typically used for removing heat generated by high-power laser diodes. At the show, Rogers PES will also present its new CoolPerformance Plus cooler, which includes a ceramic isolation layer for CTE matching and separating the electrical contact from water. All of these coolers incorporate high-quality copper for excellent thermal conductivity and effective thermal management.

Rogers Speaks at Photonics West

As part of Photonics West, Rogers PES, in partnership with Advanced Cooling Technologies (, will present a report on ACT’s (unique vapor-deposited Applied Nanoscale Corrosion Resistant (ANCER™) coatings that help extend the operating life of micro-channel copper coolers for cooling laser diodes. Thin, conformal ANCER coatings will provide excellent long-term protection from erosion and corrosion for curamik active liquid coolers. The technical presentation, which will be held on Tuesday, February 16, from 11:30 to 12:30 in the Demo Area 2 (Hall D North), will offer details on testing performed on the ANCER coatings and how they provide effective protection for Rogers curamik and other thermal management products and materials.
