Lasers & Sources

UV lasers are workhorses

Continuing advances in all-solid-state lasers are fueling their growth in UV microelectronics processing from marking to via drilling.

Saturable Bragg reflectors simplify modelocking

There are a number of advantages to modelocking a continuous-wave (CW) laser. The resultant ultrafast pulses provide temporal resolution in the femtosecond or picosecond domain...
Compact, rugged design of the new generation of diode-pumped visible-emitting lasers is exemplified by the 10-W 532-nm Millennia X. The driving engine of the system is a completely sealed double z-head in which fiber-coupled diode bars are used to pump the Nd:YVO4 gain medium.
