Manchester, N.H., Feb. 14, 2008 -- JP Sercel Associates (JPSA) said its new self-contained industrial excimer laser base makes an excimer laser system and its gas supply portable: The laser can be shipped and set up without expensive plant gas and ventilation system installations.

"This product allows excimer laser users to maximize safety, productivity and cost-efficiency for new or existing lasers, in a wide variety of industrial settings," said Rick Slagle, sales and marketing director. "Excimer lasers provide the highest power levels of all industrial UV (ultraviolet) lasers for materials processing. This product just makes them easier to install and use."

In addition to eliminating gas and ventilation system installations, the laser base has a single ventilated enclosure that reduces the total exhaust volume for improved heating and cooling costs. This further improves safety, since all the gases from the supply and the laser are in the same location. Additionally, the laser can be transported away from a process location for repairs or maintenance with very little downtime for high-duty cycle applications, JPSA said.

"This new system is also especially helpful for facilities that require a laser to be portable, e.g., movable to different experiments such as remote sensing, transportable or airborne applications dedicated to specific applications or processes," Slagle said. "It safely eliminates the need for expensive plant plumbing, dual ventilation drops, and complicated, expensive hookups. All gas is in a single, ventilated enclosure, and can use premix low concentration or 4-part low-cost gas types."

JPSA's industrial laser base is available with a number of options, including an integrated cooling system, activated carbon air filtration, and the company's advanced computer interface software.

The integrated module can accommodate the excimer laser, the gas handling system, power supply, vacuum pump, gas bottles, and more. It can be moved as a single unit and relatively quickly hooked up to the workstation that needs to run product; it also incorporates an HeNe (helium-neon) alignment laser to facilitate setup. Its open, accessible design allows easy servicing and maintenance, the company said.

"Not every customer has or can cost-justify multiple lasers in a facility. This base allows the single-laser customer to get the most use and flexibility out of it," Slagle said.

The laser base is ideal for use with Coherent Lambda Physik's LPX Pro excimer laser, he said.

"The LPX Pro has been a favorite for many of our customers. They choose it for its proven increased performance and longer lifetimes, which further reduce the amount of required gases and other consumables required for industrial operation," Slagle said.

GLOSSARY
excimer
A contraction of "excited dimer." The term refers to an excited species made by combination of two identical atoms or molecules, one of which is excited and one of which is at a ground state.
excimer laser
A rare-gas halide or rare-gas metal vapor laser emitting in the ultraviolet (126 to 558 nm) that operates on electronic transitions of molecules, up to that point diatomic, whose ground state is essentially repulsive. Excitation may be by E-beam or electric discharge. Lasing gases include ArCl, ArF, KrCl, KrF, XeCl and XeF.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
