Spectra-Physics® Unveils Ultra-Compact Femtosecond Laser

Press release date: February 3, 2014

• New air-cooled ultrafast laser is ideal for fixed wavelength multiphoton imaging and nano-structuring

Santa Clara, CA – Spectra-Physics®, a Newport company, introduces HighQ-2™, a new ultra-compact, air-cooled, fixed wavelength industrial femtosecond (fs) laser.  The ultrafast laser delivers short pulses, high peak power (>190 kW) and a highly focusable beam profile, making it perfect for fixed wavelength multiphoton imaging, micro- and nano-structuring, micro- and nano-surgery, and micro-dissection applications.

“HighQ-2 is a new class of industrial femtosecond lasers with exceptionally precise performance in a tiny, air-cooled package,” says Klaus Madlener, managing director for Spectra-Physics in Rankweil, Austria.  “The new laser is ideal for powering a range of high precision applications in bio-imaging, bio-medical and microprocessing that require a near-perfectly controlled beam and ultrashort pulse.”

Available in infrared (IR) and green wavelengths, HighQ-2 has a tiny footprint of <9 x="" 8="" x="" 4="" inches="" (222="" x="" 204="" x="" 101="" mm)="" and="" is="" a="" reliable="" oem="" laser="" for="" 24/7="" operation.="" the="" laser="" has="" the="" combination="" of="" true="" turnkey="" operation="" and="" fast,="" cold-start="" turn-on,="" making="" it="" quick="" and="" easy="" to="" install="" and="" operate. ="" highq-2="" is="" equipped="" with="" long-life="" diodes,="" a="" sealed="" optical="" cavity="" design,="" and="" is="" manufactured="" in="" a="" controlled,="" clean="" room="" environment.="" the="" result="" is="" a="" highly="" dependable="" laser="" with="" long="" lifetime,="" high="" uptime,="" and="" low="" cost="" of="">

Spectra-Physics’ new HighQ-2 laser will be featured at SPIE Photonics West, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, February 4 - 6, 2014. Please visit Spectra-Physics at booth #1301 for a demonstration. For more information, go to www.spectra-physics.com/HighQ-2.
