Photonics Industries Increases the Highest Pulse Energy YLF Ultraviolet (UV) Lasers Available

(Ronkonkoma, NY – March 16, 2017) – Photonics Industries (PI), The Pioneer of Intracavity Solid-State Harmonic Lasers, was the first to develop high efficiency Q-switched, intracavity second harmonic Nd:YLF green pump lasers back in 1993. PI continues to lead this technology today, outpacing ourselves and the competition again with the introduction of our new DM40-351, the highest pulse energy Ultraviolet (UV) laser providing:

~40mJ @ 351nm

that’s commercially available with the same excellent beam quality (i.e., M2 ~10) of our green DM Series laser. Furthermore this high pulse energy is scalable to ~80mJ in a dual head configuration for applications ranging from UV induced fluorescence, Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) to annealing OLED materials for the flat panel display industry.

Annealing of the larger and more uniform grains of polysilicon (poly-Si) in Low Temperature PolySilicon (LTPS) LCDs allows electrons to flow ~100 times faster (i.e., annealing improves resistivity) than these electrons can through the random-sized grains of amorphous silicon (a-Si), enabling higher resolutions and higher speed flat panel display. While 308nm XeCl Excimer lasers are typically used today for this OLED annealing, other wavelength (e.g., 351nm) can used. UV induced fluorescence applications need high pulse energy UV lasers to induce fluorescence to test the spectrum of gas combustion process in engine research.

Also, PI previously released our DM100-527, the Highest Pulse Energy 100mJ green YLF Laser available, which is scalable to 200mJ in a dual head configuration. For more information on our new DM40-351 laser and our other novel DM Series products please contact:
