JDSU 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. 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 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.
