SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 14, 2006 -- The new Cube 660 from Coherent Inc. is a compact laser that delivers 60 mW at 660 nm in a nearly circular, low M2 (1.15 typical) beam. According to the company, the introduction of this high-power, red diode laser further complements the broad range of wavelengths available from Coherent based on this compact, solid-state platform.

The high-power output of the Cube 660 will enable advanced product development of systems intended to utilize emerging long-wavelength fluorophores, the company said. In addition to high output power and excellent beam quality, the Cube 660 also delivers high stability in terms of beam pointing (<6 µrad/°C) and low noise (<0.2% RMS).

The utility of this laser is further extended through its ability to be directly modulated at frequencies of up to 150 MHz digital and 350 kHz analog, Coherent said. The Cube 660 laser head measures only 100 x 40 x 40 mm (3.9 x 1.6 x 1.6 in.) and is conductively cooled, which facilitates its integration into a wide range of instrumentation.

GLOSSARY
beam
1. A bundle of light rays that may be parallel, converging or diverging. 2. A concentrated, unidirectional stream of particles. 3. A concentrated, unidirectional flow of electromagnetic waves.
flow cytometry
A method of measuring the characteristics of microscopic particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Particles may be stained with fluorescent dye and the fluorescence detected via laser illumination.
