Spectra-Physics® Debuts Breakthrough High Power UV Hybrid Fiber Laser
• Quasar® laser sets new industry standard for highest-throughput, precision micromachining
“Quasar is a breakthrough in laser technology, combining the most advanced fiber laser, amplifier, and harmonics technology into a robust system to deliver industry-defining levels of performance and capability,”
Beyond delivering the highest UV power, Quasar is also available with green output of >70 W. The integrated TimeShift technology optimizes the micromachining process with the capability to vary pulse width from < 10 ns to > 100 ns at constant repetition rates. Conversely, it provides the capability to maintain constant pulse width with varying repetition rates from < 1 to 500 kHz. TimeShift technology also allows for pulse shaping and burst-mode operation for accelerating throughput while improving quality. The Quasar laser has excellent beam characteristics (M2 < 1.3) and low noise; it is designed, built, and tested to stringent quality standards for reliable continuous operation in demanding manufacturing environments.
