Coherent Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced a new, higher power
Paladin™ laser designed for high-throughput Laser Direct Imaging (LDI) and
other advanced microelectronics applications. The new Paladin Advanced 355
24000 is a mode-locked, diode-pumped, solid-state laser that delivers over
24W (at 80 MHz) of output power at 355 nm. The Paladin family of lasers have
an enviable reputation for superior reliability and performance; this new
model continues that tradition by offering industry leading specifications,
including a high quality, TEM00 beam (M2<1.2), excellent beam pointing
stability (<20 μrad/°C), superior long-term power stability (<±2%), and low
noise characteristics (<1% rms from 10 Hz to 2 MHz).
