Coherent: Industrial Laser

April 4, 2006
The new PRISMA™ 1064-32-V from Coherent, Inc. is an industrial laser that delivers an optimum mix of high peak power, short pulse width, high average power and high beam quality. Ideal for high-throughput, precision micromachining, PRISMA is a diode-pumped, solid-state, Nd:YVO4 laser that produces 30 W at 1064 nm in a TEM00 beam, with a pulsewidth as short as 18 ns, and pulse repetition rates from 20 to 100 kHz. The laser is well suited for micromachining small features in all types of materials because its short pulse width results in a minimal heat-affected zone.
