Newport Corporation - Millennia Edge Single-Frequency Green Laser
Newport Corporation Posted 01/30/2012
Lowest noise and most compact single-frequency, continuous-wave green laser in the industry
Santa Clara, CA – Spectra-Physics®, a Newport Corporation brand, launches the Millennia® Edge™ single-frequency, continuous-wave (CW) green laser. The 532nm laser features the lowest optical noise, with exceptional beam quality and pointing stability, in the most compact package available on the market. Millennia Edge is ideal for pumping Ti:Sapphire and other lasers, including carrier-envelope-phase (CEP) stabilized systems, as well as holography and interferometry applications.
“With its industry-leading performance and industrial-grade reliability, the Millennia Edge is suitable for very demanding applications, including CEP-stabilized laser system pumping,” said Julien Klein, senior marketing manager for Spectra-Physics. “The laser complements well our highly popular Millennia Prime™ family of high power (up to 15W) CW green lasers.”
Millennia Edge outputs 5W of single-longitudinal-mode CW green in a rugged, compact footprint. The laser delivers ultra-low noise of <0.02 percent rms, near perfect beam quality with M2 < 1.1, and excellent pointing stability of <2 microradians / degrees C.
Spectra-Physics also introduces the TOPAS™ Prime, the next-generation optical parametric amplifier for wavelength extension of the technically advanced Spitfire® Ace™ and Solstice® ultrafast amplifiers. Both the new Millennia Edge and TOPAS Prime will be featured at SPIE Photonics West, The Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, January 24-26, 2012. Please visit Newport's booth #1301 for a demonstration.
