Customer Success Stories

High Volume Production of Superconducting Wire/tape Using an Excimer Laser

SuperOx Japan delivered the highest ever volume of superconducting YbCO tape using a Coherent LEAP 300C excimer to power their pulsed laser deposition (PLD) process.

LEAP excimer lasers minimize the true cost per laser watt and enable lower-cost, high-volume production of HTS wire at SuperOx Japan.

Amplifier Stability Enables in-situ Studies of Ferroelectric Film Polarization

See how researchers successfully used Coherent Astrella/TOPAS to determine both the degree and direction of polarization, in films from zero to 20 unit cells (u.c.).

Amplifier thermal stability is critical. Our chamber runs at up to 950°C internally and heats the lab significantly during long experiments. The power, beam shape, and pointing of Astrella are all unaffected by these ambient changes.
