Santa Clara, CA - Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand, has launched the Pulseo® 532-44 high power green Q-switched laser for high speed microelectronics manufacturing applications.

The features include high average green power with industry-leading stability, beam quality, pulse width, and reliability. The new laser is useful for high-speed, precision cutting and drilling of semiconductors, glass, electronic packages, printed circuit boards, ceramic substrates, and other microelectronics.

"The new Pulseo 532-44 laser extends our popular and versatile line of Pulseo high power Q-switched lasers, spanning UV to green and mid power to high power and high repetition rates," notes Scott White, senior manager of product marketing for Spectra-Physics. "The new laser is designed and tested for 24/7 operation in demanding microelectronics manufacturing environments."

Spectra-Physics’ Pulseo 532-44 features >44W average 532nm output power with short 30ns pulse widths for minimizing undesirable heat damage to the processed material and <3% pulse-to-pulse stability for highest process reproducibility and yields.
