SPECTRA-PHYSICS® LAUNCHES NEW HIGH POWER GREEN Q-SWITCHED LASER

New 44W 532nm laser ideal for high speed cutting and drilling of microelectronics

Santa Clara, CA – January 7, 2013 –Spectra-Physics®, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces a high power green Q-switched laser for high speed microelectronics manufacturing applications. The Pulseo® 532-44 features high average green power with industry-leading stability, beam quality, pulse width, and reliability. The new laser is ideal for high-speed, precision cutting and drilling of semiconductors, glass, electronic packages, printed circuit boards, ceramic substrates, and other microelectronics.

“The new Pulseo 532-44 laser extends our popular and versatile line of Pulseo high power Q-switched lasers, spanning UV to green and mid power to high power and high repetition rates,” notes Scott White, senior manager of product marketing for Spectra-Physics. “The new laser is designed and tested for 24/7 operation in demanding microelectronics manufacturing environments.”

Spectra-Physics’ Pulseo 532-44 features >44W average 532nm output power with short 30ns pulse widths for minimizing undesirable heat damage to the processed material and <3% pulse-to-pulse stability for highest process reproducibility and yields. Based on the field-proven Pulseo platform, the new laser delivers exceptional long-term stability and reliability and low cost of operation.

The Pulseo 532-44 laser will be featured at SPIE Photonics West, The Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, February 5-7, 2013. Please visit Newport’s booth #1301 for a demonstration.
