Spectra-Physics, Santa Clara, Calif., a Newport Corp. Brand, announces the Explorer® XP 532-5 all-in-one, 5 W green Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser that combines the laser head and electronics into a single, compact package that fits in the palm of your hand.
The laser has a small footprint with air-cooled design, offering thermal management of less than 100 W under normal operating conditions. The lightweight package (less than 3kg) makes it easy to integrate into machine tools and ideal for use on moving gantries in solar cell, LED and microelectronics manufacturing, and laser-marking applications.
Based on Spectra-Physics’ patented architecture, the new laser delivers exceptional pulse-to-pulse stability for consistent processing and higher yields. The Explorer XP 532-5 laser operates across a wide repetition rate range from single shot up to 300 kHz for high throughput micro-machining. Other applications include LED chip marking, resistor trimming, memory repair, LIDAR, and thin film PV manufacturing.
All optical components are soldered in place, eliminating unwanted solder flux and minimizing organic contaminants that can degrade laser operation. The ruggedized laser is tested to endure bare product shock and vibration with accelerations of up to 100 g.
