Fianium has released Hylase-25, a high-energy picosecond laser, for customer trials.
The Hylase system consists of two models, with sub-20 picosecond pulse duration and specified power (maximum pulse energy) of 8W (50µJ) and 25W (125µJ). With built-in optical modulators, the laser offers a pulse repetition rate of up to 40MHz and burst-mode operation for advanced process development. Both models have also a second harmonic module as an option.
The Hylase lasers also have a compact footprint which will benefit system integrators.
