The Hawk-Pro Series of harmonic Nd:YAG lasers are ideally suited for micromachining applications where small kerf width and excellent edge quality are the most important process requirements. This series of lasers is optimized with astigmatism-free circular beams and the superior stability to ensure the highest micromachining quality. The harmonic output at 532 nm is ideal for processing materials such as semiconductor wafers, solar cells, copper, polyamide, printed circuit boards, and plastics.
The lasers in this series have become the lasers of choice for applications in many industries, from cutting and drilling diamonds and gemstones, drilling inkjet cartridges, to scribing low-k interconnect structures and cutting medical stents. Other applications include marking, wafer trimming, pumping high repetition rate Ti:Sapphire ultrafast amplifiers, particle image velocimetry (PIV), combustion analysis, laser induced fluorescence, LIDAR, resonance raman spectroscopy, chemical analysis of macromolecules, and laser microprobe analysis.
