Spectra-Physics® (Santa Clara, CA), a Newport Corporation brand, has
introduced two new industrial Q-switched lasers for 24/7 microelectronics
manufacturing applications. The Pulseo® 355-Turbo™ features advanced
ultraviolet (UV) performance at very high repetition rates (up to 500 kHz),
making it ideal for high-speed processing of semiconductors, touch screens,
high density interconnects, and other microelectronics. The Explorer®
1064-3 delivers high infrared (IR) peak power, excellent beam quality and
brightness in a robust, compact package for memory repair and micromachining
applications. The Pulseo 355-Turbo features >8W 355nm output power with <8
percent pulse-to-pulse stability at 300 kHz repetition rate. Based on the
reliable and stable Explorer platform, the Explorer 1064-3 offers short <12ns
pulse widths and near diffraction-limited beam quality in a robust package
that can be used on moving gantries.
This week's Question: Amazon recently filed a patent for parachute-aided delivery of packages. The proposed idea imagines drones releasing parcels from the sky, deploying parachutes to slow their descent and ensure the valuables inside remain...
