Birkerod, Denmark - NKT Photonics will show the new aeroPULSE line of high power picosecond lasers at Photonics West. aeroPULSE is a portfolio of industrial-grade mode-locked fiber lasers based on NKT Photonics Crystal Fibre platform. Delivering up to 40 W of output power, the aeroPULSE line is designed for applications within semiconductor inspection, bioimaging and material processing.
* Up to 40 W average power
* 5-20 ps pulse length
* excellent beam pointing stability
* compact and rugged oem design
* low cost of ownership
* all-fiber design, industrial reliability
* maintenance free 24/7 operation
* system monitoring via remote diagnostics
* no warm-up time – instant on
The all-fiber platform enables NKT Photonics to back the aeroLASE line with a 24-month warranty and the fully modular optical solution ensures easy turn-key operation, flexibility and maximum up-time.
The system configuration consists of a 19-inch rack-mountable control unit and a very low profile laser head that can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. The complete system can be either air-cooled for low output power performance or water-cooled for high output power performance.
System operation is simple and various functions can be changed on-the-fly without powering down the system. The aeroPULSE series provides high power quasi-CW output, perfect beam quality, exceptional stability and 24/7 maintenance free operation. As standard, aeroPULSE is available with either 10 or 40 W output power emitting at 1035 nm. Other wavelengths, including green, are available upon request.
The new aeroPULSE will be shown at the BiOS and Photonics West exhibition at booth #711.
