Distributor BFi Optilas has added a new range of short pulse DPSS lasers to its range, produced by Ekspla (Vilnius, Lithuania), suitable for micromachining applications. The Atlantic picosecond laser delivers 16W of average power at 1,064nm, with high pulse energy (up to 160μJ), high beam quality (M² < 1.5) and a very high repetition rate (up to 500kHz). Typical pulse duration is 10ps. Optional harmonics are available at 532nm and 355nm, and the system is sealed to provide long-term stable operation in manufacturing environments. The laser includes a built-in self-diagnostics system and advanced status reporting.
