Luxinar has added LXR 100, its first femtosecond laser, to its existing product portfolio of sealed CO2 laser sources.
The ultrashort laser has revolutionised materials processing. The extremely short pulse width of the laser virtually eliminates heat diffusion to the surroundings of the processed region, which minimises the formation of a heat-affected zone (HAZ), enabling ultrahigh precision micro- and nanofabrication of various components.
The pulse width of LXR 100 is between 900 ± 100fs, with a pulse repetition frequency between single shot and 40MHz, and a maximum rated pulse energy of 100µJ.
Jason Lee, R&D Director of Luxinar explained, “We have developed a uniquely flexible femtosecond product with a large dynamic range of average powers, pulse energies and pulse repetition frequencies enabling process optimisation in a wide range of industries and applications”.
The LXR 100 from Luxinar will be showcased on booth #4480 at SPIE Photonics West, taking place 4-6 February 2020 in San Francisco, USA.
