High-Power Q-Switched Diode-Pumped UV Lasers - Q-Series: Q305 and Q306

The high-power Q305 and Q306 lasers expand the existing Q-series that provides a solution for demanding applications requiring faster throughput. Lumentum Q-series lasers continue to lead the market for high-power Q-switched diode-pumped UV lasers used for a wide variety of high-precision micromachining applications. Whether for high-pulse-energy processing of materials such as ceramics, high-repetition-rate processing of materials such as sapphire or silicon, or patterning thin-film solar cells, the Q-series lasers deliver unsurpassed performance combined with industry-leading uptime.

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 side-pumped 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.
