Excelsior One

Spectra-Physics has expanded its range of Excelsior One continuous wave (CW) laser series.

Three new wavelengths of 515, 553, and 594nm have been added, resulting in a total of 14 wavelengths available from the Excelsior One platform of compact, integrated lasers. The expanded series offers the largest variety of diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) and direct-diode laser technology offered today, the company says. The lasers are suitable for use in flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, DNA sequencing, and other bioinstrumentation applications.

The new Excelsior One models deliver output powers of 50mW at 515 and 553nm. The 594nm wavelength model features advanced, high-output power of 100mW. The product family includes direct diode and DPSS technology in a consistent, single and compact footprint with a common electronics interface.

'Spectra-Physics’ expanded line of Excelsior One lasers is perfect for customers who need flexibility in configuring their instruments with a wide variety of wavelengths in the same footprint,' said Wolfgang Köhler, product manager for Spectra-Physics. 'These lasers are a reliable and simple solution for a wide range of fluorescence-based bio-instrumentation applications.'
