Power Technology Inc.
Power Technology Inc. of Little Rock, Ark., has acquired diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser manufacturer Klastech GmbH of Dortmund, Germany. Klastech DPSS lasers are based on patented intracavity impedance-matched amplification-tuned technology, which uses a complex dual-cavity design that increases second-harmonic conversion efficiency, produces inherently diffraction-limited output and provides natural frequency-selective performance. The lasers are suitable for metrology, biofluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, semiconductor inspection and holography applications. Under the acquisition, Power Technology will retain the Klastech organization and integrate products and employees into its organization. Power Technology manufactures laser diode products for OEM analytical, biomedical, machine vision and industrial applications.
