Spectra-Physics fs laser for fast, high quality micromachining

MKS Instruments introduces its Spectra-Physics® IceFyre® FS IR200 laser, an industrial femtosecond laser offering >200 W power and >200 µJ pulse energy with ultrashort <500 fs pulses in the infrared (IR).

The new laser delivers exceptional performance and outstanding flexibility with a wide repetition-rate range from single shot to 50 MHz, TimeShift™ programmable burst mode operation, and pulse-on-demand (POD) and position-synchronized output (PSO) triggering. IceFyre FS IR200 is ideal for high speed and quality micromachining of glass, polymers, metals, sapphire, polycrystalline diamond and many other materials for advanced electronics, displays, clean energy, medical device, and other demanding industrial applications.

“The new IceFyre FS IR200 laser is an important addition to our industry-leading IceFyre FS platform, extending the extraordinary performance, versatility and reliability to the infrared,” says Jürgen Niederhofer, general manager for Spectra-Physics lasers in Europe. “The new laser is another exciting demonstration of MKS leadership in micromachining for the most demanding high-throughput, precision manufacturing applications.”

The patent-pending IceFyre FS IR200 laser builds on MKS’ deep experience and femtosecond laser technology, and each IceFyre FS laser undergoes extensive environmental qualification testing to ensure high reliability and low cost-of-ownership. Fully automated and computer controlled, the laser exhibits exceptional stability in power, beam parameters, and beam pointing during 24/7 operation to deliver high precision and reproducibility for demanding applications. The laser’s It’s in the Box™ design integrates laser and control electronics in a single, easy-to-install package.
