SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 21, 2006 -- Coherent Inc. said its new
Prisma 1064-32-V industrial laser delivers an optimum mix of high-peak
power, short pulsewidth, high average power and exquisite beam quality.
"This is an ideal combination for high-throughput, precision micromachining," the company said.
is a diode-pumped, solid-state, Nd:YVO4 laser that produces 30 W at
1064 nm in a TEM00 beam, with a pulsewidth as short as 18 ns and pulse
repetition rates from 20 to 100 kHz.
Prisma is well-suited for micromachining small features in all
types of materials, because its short pulsewidth results in a minimal
heat-affected zone, Coherent said. Typical applications include solar
cell processing, mold form manufacturing, deep engraving and wafer
scribing. (For applications that benefit from longer pulses, Prisma LP
versions are offered.) In addition, the high average power of Prisma
enables these applications to be operated at high-throughput rates.
The Prisma 1064-32-V also offers superior reliability and
stability, as well as low cost of ownership characteristics, due to its
rugged construction, sealed resonator and use of superior Coherent AAA
(aluminum-free active area) pump diode technology, the company said. It
can be readily tailored to precisely match its output characteristics
to the needs of an application.
In addition, Prisma 1064-32-V is available with a number of useful
accessory options, such as a beam expander, visible aiming beam and
mounting flange for scanner optics.
