A new generation of industrial picosecond lasers has been introduced by Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA). The HyperRapid NX product range includes 1064 nm output models with pulse energies as high as 250 μJ (typically with 10 ps pulse duration), at repetition rates up to 2 MHz. This enables high throughput processes, including enough power for the beam to be split in order to run multiple, optical trains within one machine. The product line also includes high-power models with output at 532 nm and 355 nm.

All HyperRapid NX lasers utilize integrated electronics to produce a highly compact and extremely reliable laser head. Advanced external control and triggering methods enable sophisticated operational capabilities, including burst mode for higher ablation efficiency, and time and energy control of each individual pulse.
