EOLITE Systems (Pessac, France) has introduced the OCTOPUS laser for thin-film scribing and the BOREAS IR150 for high-powered cutting and drilling. OCTOPUS offers up to 16 fiber-delivery channels. Each beam provides light at 515nm or at 1030nm with pulse duration as low as 10ns, peak power up to 4 kW and repetition rates up to 300 kHz. Each fiber channel (up to 5m long) offers up to 4W at 515nm with excellent beam quality, or up to 30W in a uniform multimode output configuration. The BOREAS IR150 offers over 150W at 1030nm, pulses shorter than 20ns, peak power over 200 kW, high repetition rates up to 500 kHz, and a beam quality with M2 of 1.3. It produces sub-10ns pulses at repetition rates up to 400 kHz. The laser heads are conductively cooled and temperature-stabilized by a closed-loop water-cooled plate that keeps the laser in a hermetically sealed environment and extends its lifetime.
