Newport Corporation's Spectra-Physics Lasers Division has released a single frequency laser at 505nm with available output power at 10 or 20mW. The Excelsior-505 platform can be used by customers that need a reliable laser for DNA Sequencing.
In addition, the company also announced increased output power for the 100mW version of its Excelsior-405 laser, 75 and 100mW versions of the Excelsior-561 product, and a 60mW version of the Excelsior-635 device.
Spectra-Physics' Excelsior laser platform includes low power continuous wave (CW) solid-state lasers at 375, 405, 440, 473, 488, 505, 532, 561, 635, 785, and 1064nm. They are tools for a variety of OEM applications because they provide a high optical beam quality, low optical noise, and high reliability. The Excelsior lasers are stand-alone devices that are easy-to-use and operate. An integrated active light loop guarantees that every Excelsior laser delivers output power stability over a wide temperature range.
