Sparkle Optics Corp. has announced a 25-W, single-mode, Q-switched rotary disk laser for precision laser machining, x-ray and UV generation for lithography, nonlinear optics and remote sensing. The Basu2-NYC-Q delivers 220 kW of peak power at 2.5 kHz in 16.5-ns pulses, and 28.2 W of average power at 109.4 kHz in 65-ns pulses. The output from the Nd:YAG laser is polarized. The company says that the high peak and average powers along with the single-mode beam quality increase the throughput of precision laser machining operations.
