Footnotes:

  1. Due to our continuous product improvement program, specifications may change without notice.
  2. Spirit lasers with the acronym “-SHG” in the laser model are dual wavelength lasers. Two wavelength IR and Green are available from one laser system.
  3. Specific pre-calibrated repetition rates are available; please contact Spectra-Physics.
  4. Pulse duration tunability is optional; if implemented, pulse duration is software tunable.
  5. Conversion efficiency for SHG module will be lower for longer pulse width. Conversion efficiency for SHG is not specified for longer pulse width.
  6. Burst mode operation is optional; if implemented the number of pulses per burst can be selected in GUI.
  7. Repetition rates are limited to ≤500 kHz for Spirit HE and ≤2 MHz for Spirit lasers with the burst mode option.
  8. Spirit lasers are Class IV - High Power Lasers, whose beam are, by definition, a safety and fire hazard. Take precautions to prevent exposure to the direct and reflected beams. Diffuse as well as specular reflections can cause severe skin or eye damage.

Features

Overview

Spirit® sets new standards for femtosecond lasers in high-precision industrial manufacturing for micromachining of polymers, thin metals, sapphire, polycrystalline diamond, and many other materials. These lasers deliver high average power, high pulse energy, and high repetition rates for increased throughput. Customers benefit from the shortest industrially available pulse duration and superior beam quality that in turn enables machining complex and challenging parts with highest precision and quality with literally no heat affected zone (HAZ) at the highest throughput.

Highest Quality, High Throughput Micromachining

Our new additions to the industry-proven Spirit platform offers impressive versatility and performance, enabling a variety of applications. High average power (>140 W) and high pulse energy (>600 µJ) combined with high repetition rates push femtosecond micromachining applications to highest levels of throughput at lowest cost-of-ownership. The user-configurable burst mode enables processing with increased ablation efficiency, and thus increased throughput and quality for certain materials. Pulse energy and repetition rate adjustability (single shot – 30 MHz) make the Spirit 1030-140 the ideal source for ablation and cutting. The integrated pulse picker offers full control of the laser output with single pulse selection and fast power control via an analog input signal.

Spirit 515-50 offers an output power of >50 W and a typical pulse width of <300 fs at a wavelength of 515 nm. At this shorter wavelength, machining of the finest features is possible, depending on the material, at equal or even higher speeds compared to those obtained with other technologies.

24/7 Industrial Reliability

The Spirit lasers are designed and tested to rigorous quality standards for reliable 24/7 operation. The built-in data logging and analysis capability allows monitoring of all relevant laser parameters over the life time of the system. As such, this represents an indispensable diagnostics tool for service and preventive maintenance which significantly enhances uptime and thus productivity of the tool.
