Newport Corporation's Spectra-Physics has new additions to its Pulseo family of Q-switched DPSS industrial lasers. The rugged and reliable Pulseo 355-10 provides 10W of 355nm output at 90kHz with a short pulse width of <23ns.
Key applications for the Pulseo 355-10 are crystalline silicon photovoltaic solar cell manufacturing processes such as wafer scribing and dicing, drilling, and marking. The high power industrial laser is also ideal for microelectronics applications, such as via hole drilling, flex circuit cutting, flat panel manufacturing, ITO patterning, LED substrate scribing, silicon wafer dicing/scribing and low K dielectric scribing.
The Pulseo 355-10 has a short pulse width (<23 ns at 90 kHz) and high peak power. These characteristics, combined with higher repetition rates, reduce undesired thermal effects and results in higher throughput with less damage to the parts.
