Live Vibration Testing of Compact Robust Pico Second Lasers

UK distributor, Laser Lines Ltd, is pleased to announce the completion of live vibration testing of pico seconds lasers by Photonics Industries. Industrially robust ps lasers are required for the manufacturing of many novel emerging market products such as the scribing high brightness LED (HBLED) devices and 8G Flat Panel Display (FPD) systems. Photonics Industries’ RG Series diode pumped pico-second lasers are compact enough that they can be directly mounted to a movable gantry. However, when industrial lasers are utilised in this fashion they are subject to forces that lasers are rarely tested to in a live laser operating condition.

Photonics Industries’ 355nm ps lasers were vibration tested for 3 hrs with the “Laser on”, utilising transportation Simulator shaker table equipment.

The transportation simulator’s motion is a CIRCULAR SYNCHRONOUS MOTION; vectorally, the laser sees 3G at each peak of the sinusoid. The laser, and detector of the power meter, were strapped to the shaker table as shown in the photo.

Photonics Industries’ RG Series diode pumped pico-second lasers achieve <25ps nominal pulse widths while still maintaining TEM00 mode quality in a compact, industrial reliable package. Higher power IR versions (30W and 45W @ 1MHz) are also available with harmonic output such as 532nm, 355nm and 266nm as needed.
