PRESS RELEASE

EX5 excimer laser

GAM Laser has released its EX5 excimer laser, which is a low cost, compact, mini excimer laser, weighing in at only 14kg, measuring 47 x 25 x 25cm and supplying up to 7.5W at 248nm and 3.5W at 193nm.

Manufactured by GAM Laser and distributed by Photonic Solutions, the air cooled EX5 is fully computer controlled and features on-board vacuum pumps and halogen filters. This highly reliable laser offers excellent tube, optic and gas lifetimes and the low trigger jitter and excellent pulse to pulse stability of the output make this laser ideally suited to applications in micromachining, laser ablation, laser ionisation and OEM products.

All GAM excimer laser products are of total/metal ceramic construction and use no elastomers or plastics. Corona pre-ionisation is used on all systems to give low divergence laser operation with excellent beam pointing and pulse to pulse stability. Available in standard, Industrial, line narrowed and high spatial and temporal coherence models, GAM lasers provide good performance at all excimer wavelengths from 157–351nm.
