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.
