Spectra-Physics® Unveils Ultra-Compact Femtosecond Laser
Press release date: Feb 03, 2014
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 ownership.
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.
