Spectra-Physics® Debuts Breakthrough High Power UV Hybrid

• Quasar® laser sets new industry standard for highest-throughput, precision micromachining

Spectra-Physics®, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces the new Quasar, a breakthrough hybrid fiber laser that delivers high UV power at high repetition rates with TimeShift™ technology for highest-throughput, precise micromachining. Combining advanced fiber laser, power amplifier and patented harmonics technologies, the new Quasar laser produces an industry-leading >40 W UV power at high repetition rates. The novel TimeShift technology provides programmable pulse profiles to deliver the ultimate in process flexibility and control. Robust for demanding 24/7 long-term operation, Quasar enables high speed, high quality manufacturing in glass cutting, printed circuit board (PCB) drilling and cutting, silicon wafer dicing, and ceramic scribing.

“Quasar is a breakthrough in laser technology, combining the most advanced fiber laser, amplifier, and harmonics technology into a robust system to deliver industry-defining levels of performance and capability,” says Dave Allen, general manager and vice president for Spectra-Physics. “This remarkable laser enables dramatic gains in throughput, quality, and precision in the rapidly developing area of microelectronic device manufacturing.”

Beyond delivering the highest UV power, Quasar is also available with green output of >70 W. The integrated TimeShift technology optimizes the micromachining process with the capability to vary pulse width from 100 ns at constant repetition rates. Conversely, it provides the capability to maintain constant pulse width with varying repetition rates from
