Product Feature: TopWave

ǀ  TOPTICA Tuesday

TOPTICA's brandnew TopWave provides 150 mW output power at a wavelength of 266 nm. These specifications make this cw deep-UV laser an ideal tool for sophisticated measurement and production tasks in e.g. semicon inspection, lithography or Raman spectroscopy.

It is a cost-effective and reliable turnkey system that enables the user to concentrate on their application rather than worrying about the light source. The TopWave can be operated via a touch panel control unit or via USB/Ethernet using a PC GUI.

The complete UV beam path, including the resonant doubling cavity, is enclosed in a specially sealed compartment. In combination with a fully automated shifter of the doubling crystal it enables a typical lifetime of > 10,000 hours, which is key for the use in any industrial application.

Consistent beam quality (M² < 1.3) is provided by an optimized beam shaping setup which is also integrated inside the sealed UV section. To avoid contamination of the exit window in non-cleanroom environments the user can connect his purge line to the provided interface.

The TopWave 266 sets new standards with respect to low-noise operation. The narrow linewidth laser emission typically shows < 0.1 % RMS, hence the user benefits from an improved signal-to-noise ratio during measurements.
