SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 25, 2016 &mdash The HyperRapid NX range of industrial picosend lasers from Coherent Inc. are designed for economical precision materials processing. The range includes 1064-nm-output models with pulse energies as high as 250 μJ (typically with 10-ps pulse duration), at repetition rates up to 2 MHz, enabling high-throughput processes, including enough power for the beam to be split in order to run multiple, optical trains within one machine. The line also includes high-power models with output at 532 and 355 nm. All HyperRapid NX laser heads feature an identical form factor, interface and beam characteristics to simplify integration, and can operate from the same power supply and chiller. Key applications include cutting, scribing, drilling and marking of brittle materials, ceramics, polymers and composites for use in microelectronics, display and solar cell fabrication.
