  • Explorer XP 355-1 Q-switched Laser
Jan 2013
Spectra-PhysicsRequest Info
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 17, 2013 — Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand, has announced the Explorer XP 355-1, a handheld 1-W ultraviolet Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state laser. With the proprietary “It’s in the Box” design, which combines the electronics and laser head into a single lightweight package, it is rugged and easily integrates into machine tools and moving gantries.

It features an 8-ns pulse width, good beam quality and <2% pulse-to-pulse stability for high-quality processing, making it suitable for additive manufacturing, medical device manufacturing, UV marking and other precision UV micromachining applications.

The laser delivers >1-W output power at a 50-kHz repetition rate for high process reproducibility and yields. Based on the Explorer platform and Spectra-Physics’ patented architecture, it is tested to endure bare product shock and vibration with accelerations of up to 100 g.

diode-pumped solid-state laser
A compact solid-state laser, referred to as DPSSL, created when a laser diode pumps light into either the sides or end of gain crystal. Depending on where the pumping occurs, high-quality and stable output beams can be achieved with end-pumped lasers, and high-power output beams can be realized as with side-pumped lasers. Common in green laser pointers, DPSSLs are also used for a variety of materials processing applications, such as cutting and precision marking, and in optogenetics.
