IceFyre® redefines picosecond micromachining lasers with a patent-pending design to achieve exceptional performance and unprecedented versatility at industry leading cost-performance. Based on Spectra-Physics’ It’s in the Box™ design, IceFyre integrates laser and controller into the industry’s smallest package.

Exceptional Performance and Unprecedented Versatility

The new IceFyre 355-50 is the highest performing UV ps laser on the market, providing >50 W of UV output power at 1.25 MHz (>40 μJ) with 100’s μJ pulse energies in burst mode, and pulse widths of 10 ps. The IceFyre 355-50 sets new standards in power and repetition rates from single shot to 10 MHz. The IceFyre 355-30 offers >30W of typical UV output power with pulse energy >60 µJ (greater pulse energies in burst mode) and delivers exceptional performance from single shot to 10 MHz. The IceFyre 1064-50 provides >50 W of IR output power at 400 kHz single pulse and delivers exceptional performance from single shot to 10 MHz.

IceFyre’s unique design exploits fiber laser flexibility and Spectra-Physics’ exclusive power amplifier capability to enable TimeShift™ ps programmable burst-mode technology for the highest versatility and widest range in the industry. A standard set of waveforms is provided with each laser; an optional TimeShift ps GUI is available for creating custom waveforms. The laser design enables true pulse-on-demand (POD) and position synchronized output (PSO) triggering with the lowest timing jitter in its class for high quality processing at high scan speeds, e.g. when using a polygon scanner.

24/7 Industrial Reliability

IceFyre is designed, built, and tested to stringent quality standards for reliable continuous operation in demanding 24/7 manufacturing environments, resulting in high initial quality and low cost of ownership. IceFyre lasers’ automatic data logging software monitors all key laser performance parameters over the life of the laser, providing a powerful service and preventative maintenance diagnostics feature and product reliability tool.


Compatible Power Sensors

To verify and analyze the output power of your IceFyre laser, we recommend the Ophir 50(150)A-BB-26 (7Z02696) thermal power sensor and Centauri laser power meter.  Additional information on this laser measurement equipment can be found on the website.  Other Ophir sensors and meters may also be suitable for the IceFyre, depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
