High-Power Q-Switched Diode-Pumped UV and Green Lasers


High-Power Q-Switched Diode-Pumped UV and Green Lasers

Lumentum Q-Series® lasers lead the market for high-power Q-switched diode-pumped UV and green lasers used for a wide variety of high-precision, micromachining applications combined with industry-leading uptime.

The Q-Series lasers deliver high-repetition-rate processing of materials like sapphire or silicon, high-pulse-energy processing of materials including ceramics, and patterning thin-film solar cells. 

Due to the self-stabilizing characteristics of intracavity UV harmonic generation, all Q-Series lasers exhibit inherently high energy, high pulse-to-pulse stability, and long-term output power stability. In addition, the excellent thermal management of the unique Nd:YAG-based direct-coupled pump (DCP) architecture achieves excellent beam quality over a wide range of operating conditions and maintains exceptionally stable beam position and profile, which is important for processes requiring accurate feature placement. These advantages enable Q-Series lasers to achieve the tightest possible process tolerances for micromachining and other materials-processing applications.
