Industrial Revolution in Ultrafast Science

More Uptime. More Results.

What it is: Industrial laser users in 24/7 applications don’t waste time adjusting lasers or waiting for service and neither should you! That’s the idea behind our Industrial Revolution in Ultrafast Science, which includes Highly Accelerated Stress Screening (HASS verification) before our lasers leave the factory. The end result is industrial productivity for your research applications.

Bringing industrial productivity levels to your research means…

  • Less Downtime
  • More Data
  • Faster Publication

How We’ve Done It

Coherent uses a unique combination of three core strengths to design, build, and deliver scientific lasers with high-end performance and industrial reliability.

HALT/HASS program
Coherent pioneered the use of rigorous HALT/HASS practices in the laser industry. Originally developed for the NASA space program, numerous industries use this proven screening and testing approach to product reliability.

Industrial Expertise
Coherent is a leader in lasers for industrial applications, from cleanroom semiconductor manufacturing to “dirty” oil and gas exploration. We apply decades of industrial laser expertise to cutting-edge scientific lasers.

Vertical Integration
Coherent is the world’s most vertically integrated laser company. We make all critical active and passive components in-house: from complex negative dispersion mirrors to our own laser diode wafers. We use only materials that we have qualified in our own laboratories. The result is complete and total control over components quality.

Features & Benefits


​HALT: Highly Accelerated Lifetime Testing to Detect and Rectify Failure Modes

  • HALT testing reveals failure modes during product design phase.
  • HALT testing exceeds normal operating levels, including simultaneous fast temperature changes and 5-axis randomized vibration.
  • HALT testing accelerates the design cycle and improve design margins for increased lifetime and reliability

HASS: Highly Accelerated Stress Screening to Minimize Operational Failure

  • HASS testing reveals defects during product manufacturing.
  • HASS testing is more rigorous than normal operating conditions but well below HALT conditions.
  • HASS testing is most effective when included in the standard production process
