Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) has expanded their family of industrial ultrafast lasers with the Talisker 500, which delivers over 10 Watts of ultraviolet output at 355nm, 15 Watts of green output at 532nm or 25 Watts of infrared output at 1064nm. This next generation Talisker laser also increases repetition rate to 500 kHz enabling higher throughput rates than earlier models. The combination of short (10 ps) pulse duration and flexible wavelength options makes the Talisker 500 ideal for precision micromachining applications in microelectronics and other industries where any peripheral laser damage – the heat affected zone (HAZ) – must be completely avoided, but throughput is key.
