New Wave Research Introduces Jasper(TM), A Compact High-Performance Diode-Pumped Nd:YAG Laser
Laser on Display at Photonics West Booth #815, January 22-24, in San Jose, CA
Fremont, Calif., January 23, 2002 - New Wave Research today announced the availability of Jasper(TM)., a compact diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser that is ideal for microelectronics trimming and repair, shorting-bar cutting and LCD panel repair. New Wave Research will display Jasper at Photonics West booth #815, January 22-24, 2002, in San Jose, California.
Jasper offers repetition rates from 100 Hz to 10 KHz with an output power greater than 2.5W at 10 KHz. The high repetition rate provides electronics manufacturers increased throughput for micromachining and repair applications. Jasper also incorporates a stable resonator design that promotes excellent beam quality with TEMoo spatial mode at 1064 nm.
Measuring just 13.7" x 4.5" x 4.3", Jasper's compact laser head requires a minimal amount of space. In addition, the system's control panel is located on the power supply, providing safe and convenient control of all system variables. The laser can be triggered directly from the control panel or from a remote source through a rear-panel BNC. Most laser functions can also be controlled from a PC via an RS-232 port. A Q-switched synch-out BNC permits synchronization of the laser with other equipment for precise timing control.
A motorized optical attenuator that provides precise energy control without degrading pulse-to-pulse stability is available as an option.
With the development of Jasper, New Wave Research also broadens its family of AccuLaze tabletop microelectronics machining stations. Jasper will be integrated into the AccuLaze J-model, providing the company with a 1064-nm version of its compact microelectronics machining station. AccuLaze products accommodate a wide range of laser trimming applications and are available in a variety of wavelengths from deep-UV to IR.
Established in 1990, New Wave Research manufactures a range of small, pulsed Nd: YAG laser systems for semiconductor failure analysis, LCD repair, laser ablation for ICP mass spectroscopy, particle image velocimetry, OEM and other scientific and industrial applications.
