PRESS RELEASE

“Power Technology Announces New Green PNF Series Laser for Surgical and X-ray Alignment Applications”

LITTLE ROCK, AR, November 8, 2011– Power Technology, Inc., a leader in the Photonics Industry for over 40 years, announced today the availability of PNF Series green wavelength spectrum lasers suitable for surgical and X-ray alignment applications on dark or pigmented skin. Green lasers are much more visible to the human eye against dark or pigmented skin than traditional red wavelength surgical lasers. In fact, PNF green wavelength line-generator lasers are much easier to identify under the extremely bright light conditions of the operating room.

Walter Burgess, VP of Sales and Engineering. “We are excited about our newest offering, the Green PNF Series which can deliver an output power of either 20mW or 45mW with a wavelength of 515nm. This new offering further increases the available choices of green wavelength structured light lasers designed for medical and surgical applications.” Mr. Burgess went on to say, “Additional design features include uniform intensity (non-Gaussian) line generators, unique Variable Focus Technology, high wavelength stability, high optical power stability, and CW or optional digital/analog modulation >500kHz.”
