SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 26, 2012 — Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand, has introduced two industrial Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers for 24/7 microelectronics manufacturing applications. The Pulseo 355-Turbo features advanced ultraviolet performance at repetition rates of up to 500 kHz, making it suitable for high-speed processing of semiconductors, touch screens, high-density interconnects and other microelectronics. The Explorer 1064-3 delivers high-infrared peak power, good beam quality and high brightness in a robust and compact package for memory repair and micromachining applications. The Pulseo 355-Turbo features >8 W 355-nm output power with <8% pulse-to-pulse stability at a 300-kHz repetition rate. The Explorer 1064-3 offers <12-ns pulse widths and near-diffraction-limited beam quality in a robust package that can be used on moving gantries.
