Spectra-Physics a subsidiary and brand of MKS Instruments, Inc.(NASDAQ: MKSI) announces that it has received the Laser Industry Innovation Award in China for the Spectra-Physics® Explorer® One™ high-energy ultraviolet (UV) nanosecond laser. MKS received the industrial lasers award in recognition for the high performance (high pulse energy of 200 μJ and 4 W output power in the UV) in an ultracompact size, ideal for precision industrial manufacturing applications.
“We are honored to be presented with this innovation award for our recent addition to our Explorer One pulsed UV laser family,”
said Jürgen Niederhofer, general manager for Spectra-Physics lasers in Europe.
“The award is another important recognition of Spectra-Physics leadership in UV lasers and our contribution to demanding industrial production processes.”
MKS representatives accepted the award at a ceremony in Shenzhen, China. The Guangdong Laser Industry Association aims to encourage innovation and development to promote laser technology to a higher level.
The Explorer One HP HE 355-200 laser offers >200 µJ of UV pulse energy, pulse widths of <15 ns, and user-adjustable repetition rates from single shot to 200 kHz. The laser’s advanced E-Track™ active pulse-energy control features a closed-loop algorithm that enables dynamic pulse energy adjustment with various gating operations for optimal process control.
The Explorer One HP HE 355-200 laser will be featured at SPIE Photonics West, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, January 25-27, 2022. Please visit Spectra-Physics at booth #927 for a demonstration.
