SANTA CLARA, Calif., 3 Dec. 2007.Coherent Inc. in Santa Clara, Calif., is introducing the AVIA 532-38 diode-pumped, solid state laser that delivers more than 38 Watts of output at 532 nanometers (at 120 kHz) with a pulse width of 45 nanoseconds.

This laser's beam characteristics (TEM00, M2 < 1.3), combined with its high average power and high peak power, make the AVIA 532-38 applicable to micromachining applications requiring fast throughput and precision edge quality (minimized heat affected zone).

Applications include singulation of microelectronics packages, wafer scribing, and edge isolation in solar cells.

Backed by a two-year/10,000 hour warranty, this model is based on the existing AVIA O/A platform (oscillator/amplifier cavity) that is configured for long-term stability, high reliability and ease of operation.

This design incorporates key proprietary features such as PermAlign, a solder-bonding technology for securely mounting all the resonator optics, as well as long-lived AAA (Aluminum-free Active Area) pump laser diodes. The laser is simple to operate and integrate thanks to the use of Total Pulse Control, a comprehensive software suite that enables customized pulse control and power on demand. The complete AVIA 532-38 laser system includes a sealed, water-cooled laser head and a compact air-cooled power supply.

Founded in 1966, Coherent Inc. is a Standard & Poor's SmallCap 600 company and a world leader in providing laser-based solutions to the commercial and scientific research markets. For more information contact Coherent online at www.Coherent.com.
