NKT Photonics today releases the new aeroPULSE line of high power picosecond lasers. aeroPULSE is a portfolio of industrial-grade mode-locked fiber lasers based on NKT Photonics world renowned Crystal Fibre platform. Delivering up to 40W of output power, the aeroPULSE line is designed for applications within semiconductor inspection, bioimaging and material processing.
- Up to 40W 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. René Kristiansen, Product Line Manager for aeroLASE, explains:
“We have been supplying our aeroGAIN solutions for the industrial laser market for many years and now we use that experience to offer our superior mode quality and stability to a wider audience in the form of a complete integrated laser solution. The aeroPULSE line is aimed at users needing high reliability and stability without costly maintenance.”
The system configuration consists of a 19” 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 40W output power emitting at 1035nm. Other wavelengths, including green, are available upon request.
The new aeroPULSE will be shown at the BiOS and Photonics West exhibition on booth #711 in San Francisco in the beginning of February.
