PULSED ULTRAVIOLET LASER
May 2004Newport Spectra-Physics GmbHRequest Info
The Triton from Spectra-Physics GmbH is a frequency-tripled, Q-switched Nd:YLF laser intended for applications in the biosciences, such as analyte detection and laser microdissection. The company says that the 349-nm laser outperforms nitrogen lasers for these applications, offering control over pulse energies at repetition rates of up to 1 kHz, higher beam quality and beam pointing stability, higher wall-plug efficiency and lower amplitude noise. As a solid-state laser, the Triton has no discharge tube to replace, which improves the reliability and operating lifetime of the system.
