Light Conversion has released a 50W ultraviolet (UV) femtosecond laser, the CARBIDE-CB3-50W-UV.
The model opens up possibilities in applications such as ablation, dicing, and material modification for semiconductors, consumer electronics, luxury goods, and other industries, Light Conversion says.
The laser emits 500fs pulses at a 343nm wavelength and fits into the footprint of 84 × 35cm, making it the most compact 50W UV femtosecond laser currently available in the market, according to the firm.
“We are happy to bring in the high-power femtosecond UV laser. It has not only maintained the footprint of the Carbide laser with standard harmonics but also the stability, which is key in the long run,” said Domas Baliukonis, laser product manager at Light Conversion. “Furthermore, the beam quality is quite exceptional considering the power level at this spectral range.”
The laser’s high power allows the beam to be split into multiple parts – parallelising the micromachining processes and increasing throughput. The Carbide platform ensures simple integration into industrial 24/7 workstations.
