June 20, 2012. Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces the Excelsior One continuous-wave (CW) lasers series. The new line of ultraviolet (UV), visible, and near-infrared (NIR) CW lasers integrate laser head and controller into a single, compact package.
Available as free-space and fiber-coupled laser configurations, the plug-and-play Excelsior One series includes eleven different wavelengths and delivers up to 500 mW of average power. For added convenience, the integrated lasers utilize only one supply voltage for all models. They are ideal for use in flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, DNA sequencing, and other bioinstrumentation applications.
