Newport Corporation's Spectra-Physics Lasers Division (Mountain View, CA) has unveiled the latest addition to its Excelsior product family. The Excelsior-505 platform is a single frequency laser at 505 nm with available output power at 10 or 20 mW. It is the ideal choice for customers that need a reliable laser for DNA Sequencing. The company also announced increased output power for the 100 mW version of its Excelsior-405 laser, 75 and 100 mW versions of the Excelsior-561 product, and a 60 mW version of the Excelsior-635 device.
Spectra-Physics' Excelsior laser platform includes low power continuous wave solid-state lasers at 375, 405, 440, 473, 488, 505, 532, 561, 635, 785, and 1064 nm. They are excellent tools for a variety of OEM applications because they provide superior optical beam quality, exceptionally low optical noise, and high reliability. The entire laser family has been designed for a wide range of applications including flow cytometry, DNA sequencing, confocal microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, laser-induced fluorescence, interferometry, semiconductor inspection and metrology.
