Spectra-Physics® Introduces World’s Smallest UV 1 W Q-switched Laser
• New compact, low cost Explorer® XP 355-1 ideal for UV micromachining applications
“We are excited about the Explorer XP 355-1, a breakthrough in UV lasers that delivers over a Watt of UV power from a single, tiny package that fits in the palm of your hand,” says Wolfgang Köhler, product manager of Spectra-Physics, Stahnsdorf, Germany. “We believe this low cost, compact laser will enable our customers to realize machine tool designs with reduced footprint, cost, and cost of operation, while delivering high quality UV micro-processing results.”
The Explorer XP 355-1 delivers > 1W output power at 50 kHz repetition rate with a short 8ns pulse width and < 2 % pulse-to-pulse stability for highest process reproducibility and yields. Based on the field-proven Explorer platform and Spectra-Physics’ patented architecture, the ruggedized laser is tested to endure bare product shock and vibration with accelerations of up to 100 g with exceptional reliability and low cost of operation.
The new Explorer XP 355-1 laser will be featured at SPIE Photonics West, The Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, February 5-7, 2013. Please visit Newport's booth #1301 for a demonstration. For more information, please visit: www.newport.com/
