Highest Power Green Output for Industrial AppsSANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 15, 2006 -- Laser maker Coherent Inc. has
introduced the Avia 532-30, which delivers over 30 W of green (532 nm)
output, making it the highest power industrial laser available at this
wavelength. This Q-switched, diode-pumped laser is designed to meet the
needs of high-throughput materials processing as well as demanding
scientific applications. According to Coherent, the Avia 532-30
features excellent beam quality (TEM00, M2 <1.3) and can be operated
with pulse repetition rates from single shot up to 150 kHz with a
pulsewidth as short as 45 ns.
new laser is the latest member of the Avia family of field-proven
industrial lasers based on harmonic generation of Nd-doped gain media.
It uses the same resonator design and advanced manufacturing methods to
deliver long-term stability, high reliability and ease of operation,
according to the company. These include PermAlign, a proprietary
solder-bonding technology for securely mounting all the resonator
optics, as well as long-lived AAA- (aluminum-free active area) pump
laser diodes. The laser can be integrated through the use of Total
Pulse Control, a comprehensive software suite that enables customized
pulse control and power on demand.
Primary applications for the Avia 532-30 are in precision
micromachining (drilling, cutting, scribing, marking and other surface
treatments) in the microelectronics industry. The 532 nm output is an
optimum wavelength for processing semiconductors, as it produces a
minimal heat affected zone (HAZ), and is also useful for numerous
synthetics, plastics, ceramics and precious metals. These applications
will benefit from the high average output power that translates into
faster processing and higher yields. In addition, the beam quality and
short wavelength deliver high spatial resolution, enabling the creation
of smaller features. According to Coherent, the laser is also ideal for
remote sensing and power-hungry scientific applications.
