SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 5, 2013 — Coherent Inc.’s new Talisker 1000 series industrial ultrafast lasers are designed for high-throughput, precision materials processing applications in the semiconductor, solar (photovoltaics), medical devices, consumer electronics and automotive industries.
The high-power picosecond lasers offer three single-wavelength versions: near-infrared (1064 nm), green (532 nm) and ultraviolet (355 nm), all at 1000 kHz.
The near-IR is suitable for scribing and engraving stainless steel and other metals. The green delivers higher precision for several high-value exotic metals, and the UV is optimal for processing glass and other transparent or brittle materials.
Applications include glass cutting for smartphone touch screens; drilling injector nozzles for automotive and medical dispensing; processing plastic electronics such as OLEDs; engraving steel for printing fabrics and currency; and patterning metals on ceramic substrates for high-power RF electronics.
The Talisker 1000 offers pulse repetition rates as high as 1 MHz, enabling higher throughput in many applications. With average powers as high as 25 W, the series is identical in form, fit and function to earlier lower-power Talisker models, simplifying tool redesign cycles.
