Spectra-Physics® Launches Compact Integrated Lasers for Bioinstrumentation
Excelsior® One™ features 11 wavelengths in a single package
June 20, 2012
Santa Clara, CA – June 20, 2012 – Spectra-Physics®, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces 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 into a single, compact 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.
For added convenience, the integrated lasers utilize only one supply voltage for all models. They are ideal for use in
flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, DNA sequencing, and other bioinstrumentation applications.
“Featuring true modularity with an integrated, single footprint across a broad selection of wavelengths, power levels,
and configurations, the Excelsior One lasers are perfect for customers who need flexibility in configuring their instruments,
even for upgrades or reconfigurations in the field,” states Jürgen Niederhofer, general manager for Spectra-Physics
(Stahnsdorf, Germany). “With market-leading power levels and performance, and proven reliability, these lasers are a dependable,
simple solution for a wide range of fluorescence-based bioinstrumentation applications.”
The Excelsior One product family includes direct diode and diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) technology in a consistent
compact footprint with a common electronics interface. The new platform is based on Spectra-Physics’ It’s In the Box™ design,
where the laser cavity and control electronics are integrated into a single, compact housing, thereby eliminating unnecessary
cables and external controllers. All lasers deliver TEM00 mode quality and very low optical noise for highest signal-to-noise ratio.
The DPSS models are available in single or multi-longitudinal
mode versions. Easy to configure, the direct-diode models include high speed modulation (TTL and analog) plus an RS-232 interface.
Spectra-Physics’ Excelsior One series lasers will be featured at
Congress Center Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany, June 24-26,
2012. Please visit Newport's booth #213 for a demonstration. For more information,
