The Industrial Revolution in Ultrafast Science

Recognizing that productivity and cost of ownership are crucial for scientific laser users, Coherent has developed a new approach to designing and building the latest generations of ultrafast lasers that is unrivalled by competitors. Coherent’s Industrial Revolution in Ultrafast Science leverages a leading industrial laser manufacturing expertise, an un-matched capacity for vertical integration, and advanced, environmental stress testing protocols unique to the industry. The results – ultrafast lasers that offer cutting edge performance and industrial-grade reliability, up-time and productivity.

Using this approach, Coherent rigorously tests every laser during the design and production phases to weed out design and manufacturing weaknesses, resulting in a new level of reliability for ultrafast lasers. For the design phase, Coherent uses an industrial-grade HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) protocol in which the system under development is subjected to both temperature and vibration cycles in order to expose the weakest links and facilitate their elimination. A less severe stress protocol, HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening), is used during manufacturing to weed out any production weaknesses and ensure consistent quality of each laser shipped to our customers.

For scientific customers, this revolution in reliability translates into higher data throughput with minimized downtime - lower cost per data point. It delivers a massive reduction in the hidden costs of owning and operating the laser and maximizes experimental productivity.
