Ekspla has introduced the PL10100 series picosecond diode-pumped laser. High output power (10 W at 1064 nm) establishes this laser as a versatile tool for variety of material processing applications. In addition, the PL10100 laser features high pulse energy (up to 200 µJ), excellent beam quality (M²<1.5) and high repetition rate (up to 100 kHz) of typically 10-ps pulses. Optional harmonics are available at 532, 355 and 266 nm. Its rigid and hermetically sealed design makes this laser suited for industrial environments. The optical part is placed in a robust, precisely machined monolithic aluminum alloy block, which can be used as a separate module for extremely compact and tightly sealed OEM solutions. Optimized layout, PC control, built-in self-diagnostics and advanced status reporting ensure reliable hands-free operation.
