- Power Technology Purchases Klastech
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 31, 2013 — Power Technology Inc. has acquired diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser manufacturer Klastech GmbH of Dortmund, Germany.
Klastech DPSS lasers are based on patented intracavity impedance-matched amplification-tuned (iMAT) technology, which uses a complex dual-cavity design that significantly increases second-harmonic conversion efficiency, produces an inherently diffraction-limited output and provides natural frequency-selective performance. The lasers are suitable for metrology, biofluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, semiconductor inspection and holography applications.
Under the acquisition, Power Technology will retain the Klastech organization in its entirety and will work over the next several months to seamlessly integrate both products and employees into its organization. Production and sales of Klastech’s laser line will continue at the Dortmund location.
Power Technology manufactures laser diode products for OEM analytical, biomedical, machine vision and industrial applications.

- laser cavity
- A means of optical confinement intended to increase the gain length of radiation prior to emission from the device. The means of optical confinement used to increase gain path length vary depending upon the properties of the beam desired within the lasing medium. High light intensities occur within a laser cavity and dielectric mirrors coated for the lasing wavelength are used.The position and curvature of the optical cavity elements may be altered in order to optimize the laser performance as...
