FLARE NX

The Next Generation Short-Pulsed DPSS Lasers for Life Sciences, Instrumentation and Scientific Applications

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

Available in wavelengths from UV to IR, the FLARE NX offers short-pulse durations of ~1 ns, high repetition-rates up to 2 kHz, and high pulse energies up to 500 µJ. The solid-state technology guarantees longer lifetimes than gas lasers; therefore, increasing quality and throughput. The compact and rugged package 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, low cost-effective solution.
