SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 1, 2013 — Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand, has extended the Excelsior One CW laser series with the release of three new wavelengths: 515, 553 and 594 nm. The expanded series of 14 diode-pumped solid-state and direct-diode lasers is suitable for a variety of fluorescence-based bioinstrumentation applications, including flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and DNA sequencing.
The 515- and 553-nm models deliver output power of 50 mW, and the 594-nm instrument has an output power of 100 mW. The devices are based on a proprietary It’s In the Box design, where the laser cavity and control electronics are integrated into a single, compact package, eliminating unnecessary cables and external controllers.
The instruments deliver TEM00 mode quality and low optical noise for a high signal-to-noise ratio. The DPSS models are available in single- or multi-longitudinal mode versions. They are equipped with an RS-232 software interface, and the direct-diode models include high-speed modulation (TTL and analog).
