Air-Cooled Argon-Ion Lasers in Cylindrical and Rectangular Packages
Lumentum’s air-cooled argon lasers are designed for complex, high-resolution OEM applications such as flow cytometry, DNA sequencing, graphic arts, and semiconductor inspection. They are available in two packages:
Symmetric design and axial airflow in the cylindrical argon ion laser heads provide the best mechanical package to ensure optimum beam-pointing stability and fast warm-up. Both initial installation and routine maintenance are straightforward due to tight production control of optical and mechanical tolerances. Blower-induced mechanical vibration is virtually eliminated through the use of flexible ducting between the laser head and blower assembly.
Industry-standard rectangular packaging and a variety of wavelength options ensure easy initial installation and field replacement for most applications. As with Lumentum cylindrical laser heads, rectangular models incorporate axial airflow for exceptional beam pointing stability and fast warm-up. A top-mounted fan assembly simplifies installation.
