Spectra-Physics introduces industrial picosecond laser

Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces Spirit ps 1040-10, an industrial-grade picosecond laser for precision micromachining applications. The new laser delivers high finesse with exceptional beam quality (M2< 1.2), high stability (<1% rms over 100 hours), and short pulse widths (13 ps). The laser is also highly flexible with user-adjustable repetition rates from single shot to 1 MHz and an integrated pulse picker for fast pulse selection and power control. With >10 W average power, the laser is ideal for precision picosecond micromachining applications such as semiconductor and LED manufacturing, flat panel display processing, thin film ablation, and nano structuring.

“The Spirit ps laser’s precise beam shape, pulse duration, and energy translate into high-precision application results,” says Herman Chui, senior director of product marketing for Spectra-Physics. “Combined with its flexibility in repetition rate and pulse energy, this rugged industrial laser is ideal for a wide range of critical picosecond micromachining applications.”

Spectra-Physics’ Spirit ps 1040-10 laser is based on the field-proven Spirit industrial ultrafast laser platform. With high quantities of deployed systems in demanding 24/7 applications, this rugged product platform has consistently demonstrated high reliability.

The new Spirit ps 1040-10 laser will be featured at LASER World of Photonics in Munich, Germany, May 13-16, 2013.

Newport Corporation is a global supplier of advanced-technology products and systems to customers in the scientific research, microelectronics manufacturing, aerospace and defense/security, life and health sciences and precision industrial manufacturing markets.
