FLARE NX

The FLARE NX is the next generation of passively Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers designed to serve the life sciences, instrumentation, and scientific markets.

Short-Pulsed Diode-Pumped Solid-State Lasers

The FLARE NX is the next generation of passively Q-switched diodepumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers designed to serve demanding applications in the life sciences and instrumentation markets.

Available in wavelengths from IR to UV, the FLARE NX offers short pulse durations of ~1 ns. The FLARE NX also offers high repetitionrates up to 2 kHz, and pulse energies up to 500 µJ. The solid-state technology ensures long lifetimes, increasing quality and throughput.

The compact and rugged packaging of the FLARE NX laser head, coupled with digital driver concept, enables direct integration in OEM designs.

The superior performance, proven reliability and ruggedness, combined with ease of operation, make the FLARE NX a high-performing, cost-effective solution.
