This family of rugged and compact OEM lasers uses state-of-the-art mode-locking technology to deliver ultra-short picosecond pulses with outstanding long-term stability, very narrow linewidth, low noise, and excellent TEMoo--mode quality.
As standard, aeroPULSE is available with output powers up to 40W emitting at 1030nm. Other wavelengths, including green, are available upon request.
Optimized for demanding applications
The aeroPULSE lasers were developed for demanding 24/7 OEM applications, high-lighting unit-to-unit consistency and uptime, low cost of ownership, and ease of integration.
Designed for the stringent requirements of semiconductor wafer processing and micromachining applications where its superior reliability is a mandatory product attribute. Every feature of the aeroPULSE is designed for continuous and consistent operation for in demanding applications.
Rugged industrial design
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 laser head can be either air-cooled for low output power performance or water-cooled for high output power performance.
Remote control via an RS-232 interface
The system can be remotely controlled via an RS-232 interface and incorporates extensive on-board data logging of key parameters. Our proprietary manufacturing technology ensures product quality while our tightly controlled supply chain makes for consistency.
