Spectra-Physics®, a brand of Newport Corporation (Santa Clara, CA), has announced the Excelsior One continuous- wave (CW) lasers series. The new line of ultraviolet (UV), visible, and near-infrared (NIR) CW lasers integrate laser head and controller in one package. Available as free-space and fiber-coupled laser configurations, the plug-and-play Excelsior One series includes eleven different wavelengths and delivers up to 500 mW of average power. The integrated lasers utilize only one supply voltage for all models.

The Excelsior One products include direct diode and diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) technology with a common electronics interface. The platform is based on Spectra-Physics’ It’s In the Box™ design, where the laser cavity and control electronics are integrated into a single housing. All lasers deliver TEM00 mode quality and low optical noise for highest signal-to-noise ratio. The DPSS models are available in single or multilongitudinal mode versions. The direct-diode models also include high speed modulation (TTL and analog) plus an RS-232 interface.
