There is a desire to use shorter (i.e., sub ns) pulse width lasers to enable a more precise ablative based material processing. If the pulse width is too long >10 ns the processing is fast, but crude. If the pulse width is too short <10ps the processing is precise, but slow. In an effort to balance the optimum pulse width with material removal rate, Photonics Industriesdeveloped a unique sub ns (<1ns nominal pulse width) laser. Combining this with an excellent TEM00 mode quality (M2 <1.5) Photonics Industries announces a unique high intensity(i.e., high brightness) sub ns laser (the SN series) for industrial micro machining apps.
Sub ns pulse width
High peak power
High repetition rate
Excellent beam quality (M2 <1.5)
Closed loop chilled
Small form factor, compact laser head
Diode pumped technology
Wide range of powers and harmonic options available
