PUFL series UV fibre lasers

AMS Technologies has announced the new series UV fibre lasers. The PUFL series UV fibre lasers are pulsed laser sources emitting at 355 nm and delivering high peak power pulse in a compact package.

The 355nm series is a UV laser based on the combination of a powerful 1.0μm fibre laser and a compact / efficient frequency converter. Output beam is near gaussian and collimated.

The laser system is delivered with an interface module that allows to drive the laser very easily and to keep the frequency converter at constant temperature. This source is ideal for aerosol detection or biological experimentation applications.

Applicationds for this technology include aerosol detection, fluorescence excitation, Raman spectroscopy, biological experimentation and wafer inspection.
