Ultrafast laser technology expert, NKT Photonics, has signed a strategic partnership with Oxide Corporation of Japan, the world’s premier supplier of industrially reliable optical frequency conversion technology.
The two companies will combine their industrially reliable technologies to develop and manufacture a range of ultraviolet and deep ultraviolet ultrafast lasers. The focus will be on lasers with high industrial reliability for the growing and demanding micromachining markets in semiconductor, consumer electronics, and medical.
According to Basil Garabet, President & CEO of NKT Photonics, the collaboration will enable them to offer highly reliable, cost-effective, and flexible ultrafast UV lasers delivering both high average power and high pulse energy. Yasunori Furukawa, President & CEO of Oxide Corporation believes, the co-operation will allow Oxides’ cutting-edge THG modules to be combined with NKT’s highly-functional fiber lasers, further enhancing the performance of each.
Oxide Corporation, a highly technology-oriented venture business, supplies wide range of products and services to its customers, including single crystals, a key material for today’s cutting-edge optical technology, optical devices based on such high-performance crystals and optical assemblies from modules to DUV and VUV lasers into which its high-quality crystals and devices as well as its design technology are all functionally integrated.
The first lasers based on the collaboration are currently on display at the NKT Photonics booth A3.137 at LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich from June 24-27. Click here for more updates from the event.
