The Azure deep-UV laser is a compact, low-noise, CW 266 nm source designed for easy integration into an industrial environment.
The Azure laser emits a wavelength of 266 nm, which allows detection of smaller wafer defects that longer wavelengths miss. And, with its shorter wavelength, the Azure improves disc mastering, allowing CDs and DVDs to have higher information storage density than those produced with traditional 351 nm and 413 nm wavelength lasers.
The Azure features the Sentinel system, an on-board series of automated capabilities that control beam pointing, maintain constant output power at 266 nm, shift the crystal, and relock the cavity. The Sentinel system allows the Azure to operate hands-free for extended periods without compromising its performance.
The Azure uses the field-proven Verdi laser to generate green light (532 nm) that is then frequency-doubled to 266 nm in a resonant enhancement cavity. The Verdi’s ultra-low noise characteristics, stability and long life are also features of the Azure.
