Compact, All-Solid-State Ultraviolet Laser
Jun 2006
Coherent Inc.Request Info
SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 26, 2006 -- The Paladin Compact ultraviolet (UV) laser from Coherent Inc. delivers high-power, quasi-continuous wave (CW) output at 355 nm with only half the footprint of previous models -- ideal for OEMs and systems integrators servicing CW ultraviolet applications in the microelectronics, bioinstrumentation and graphic arts industries, Coherent said. The Paladin Compact is available coherentpal.jpgwith 2 W of output, with a laser head only 60 x 25 x 25 cm (23.6 x 10 x 10 inches).

Compared to the standard Paladin, the Paladin Compact delivers an even higher repetition rate (120 Mhz), which is faster than the timescale of virtually every CW application. The small footprint and choice of either water-cooling or air-cooling also make the Paladin Compact easy to integrate into an instrument or system.

Applications include high-throughput flow cytometry and computer-to-plate direct imaging in the printing industry, as well as inspection of bare and structured semiconductor wafers. Paladin Compact is also ideal for laser direct imaging of printed circuit boards (PCBs), supporting the high repeatability necessary to correct for localized shrinkage in multilayer PCBs.
