Spectra-Physics recently announced the release of its V-XTREME(TM) laser, which delivers pulse repetition rates in the range 200 to 400 kHz. This high repetition rate is an order of magnitude greater than the typical maximum offered by other industrial solid state lasers. Even at these high speeds, the output of this new laser is characterized by extremely low noise, with pulse power variations less than 4% peak-to-peak. The laser is targeted at applications involving micromachining and surface structuring of metals, semiconductors and plastics. With an average power greater than 8 Watts at 1064 nm, the V-XTREME laser will enable a significant increase in throughput for high-speed applications based on galvanometer scanning or rapid XY table motion.
