Highest Power Ultrafast Laser for High Throughput Materials Processing
March 4, 2013
Santa Clara, Calif., March 4, 2013 – Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) (Nasdaq: COHR) has expanded its family of
industrial ultrafast lasers with the new Talisker 1000 series. This new series of high power picosecond lasers is designed for
materials processing applications in the semiconductor, solar (photovoltaics), medical devices, consumer electronics and automotive industries. The Talisker 1000 has three single wavelength versions available - near infrared (1064 nm), green (532 nm) and ultraviolet (355 nm) - all at 1000 kHz. The near IR is ideal for scribing and engraving stainless steel and other metals. The green wavelength delivers higher precision, perfect for several high value exotic metals. The UV is optimal for processing glass and other transparent or brittle materials. Specific examples include glass cutting for smartphone touchscreens; drilling injector nozzles for automotive and medical dispensing; processing plastic electronics such as OLEDs; engraving steel for printing fabrics and currency, or patterning metals on ceramic substrates for high power RF electronics.
Picosecond lasers enable precision materials process with superior spatial resolution and virtually no peripheral thermal effects.
offers pulse repetition rates as high as 1 MHz, which helps enable higher throughput in many applications. With average powers as
high as 25 Watts, this new laser series is identical in form, fit and function to earlier lower power Talisker models, simplifying
tool redesign cycles.
Founded in 1966, Coherent, Inc. is a world leader in providing photonics based solutions to the commercial and scientific research
markets, and is part of the Standard & Poor’s SmallCap 600 Index and the Russell 2000.
