Frequency-Tripled DPSS Laser

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 13, 2008 – Coherent Inc., has introduced the new Matrix 355 BE, a frequency-tripled DPSS (diode-pumped solid-state) laser that delivers a unique combination of low output noise and low beam divergence.
Specifically, this is the first OEM UV laser to incorporate an integral beam expander within the sealed laser head, which results in an output beam diameter (1/e2) of 2.2 mm and a divergence of only 0.5 mrad. This low divergence is an advantage in many OEM applications, especially those having particularly long beam delivery paths or requiring high NA focusing. The new laser is offered with a choice of 1 or 2 W of average power and pulse repetition rates as high as 60 kHz.
As with other Matrix lasers, the 355 BE is fully RoHS compliant and backed by an 18 month/10,000 hour warranty. The Matrix 355 BE is optimized to deliver long-lifetime operation for precision applications in materials processing and marking, such as stereolithography (rapid prototyping), LCD/FPD titling, memory repair, thin-film ablation, internal glass marking, cold marking of plastics and semiconductors, and semiconductor scribing.
