The Spirit® HE industrial femtosecond laser product line delivers high energy, and high average power for applications requiring reliable and robust 24/7 operation. With direct diode pumped technology developed by Spectra-Physics, Spirit’s innovative and simple architecture offers truly unique performance.
The Spirit platform offers impressive versatility to serve the needs of industrial and scientific customers. High average power (>30 W) and high pulse energy (>120 μJ) enable femtosecond micromachining applications with high throughput and excellent cost-performance. Pulse energy and repetition rate adjustability (single shot – 1 MHz) make Spirit HE the ideal source for medical device manufacturing, material ablation and high aspect ratio drilling. The integrated pulse picker available in all models offers full control of the laser output with single pulse selection and fast power control via an analog input signal. This simplifies the integration of the lasers. Optionally, the available burst mode offers higher ablation efficiencies and therefore higher throughput.
The optional, high efficiency Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) module is integrated in the laser head and enables the fabrication of smaller and more accurate structures. A pulse energy of >60 μJ at 520 nm is available. The fundamental and SHG output beams are collinear at the laser exit for easy integration and beam delivery. The end user can easily switch between the 1040 nm and 520 nm outputs using either the communication interface (TCP/IP) or the user control software.
Fully automated and computer controlled, Spirit is manufactured with high reliability and quality in mind. Spirit’s design is optimized for easy integration and for superb power and beam pointing stability (typically <20 μrad for 100 hours) during 24/7 operation, ensuring high precision and reproducibility in every application.
