MKS Instruments Showcases Customer-Focused Photonics Innovations at SPIE’s Photonics West 2024

MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that transform our world, is committed to developing, delivering, and scaling innovative, customer-focused products and services for the Photonics Industry.

The MKS brands of the Photonics Solutions Division – Newport™, Ophir®, and Spectra-Physics® – have been a formidable market-leading force in the industry for decades and have had a constant presence at the SPIE Photonics West conference since its inception in 1995.

 

Figure 1. Newport, Ophir, and Spectra-Physics are part of the MKS Instruments strategy to Surround the Workpiece®, an integrated system that incorporates product design and development; system-level integration; research and development; system, subsystem, and component selection; and maintenance, repair, and calibration services for laser-based guidance and control of manufacturing processes.

​​​​​​​At Photonics West 2024, San Francisco, CA, January 30 – February 1, 2024, MKS will highlight some of its new products in Booth 927:

  • Spectra-Physics Talon® Ace™ UV100 laser, a powerful pulsed nanosecond laser that delivers an industry-leading >100 W UV power with TimeShift™ programmable pulse capability for high-speed micromachining of advanced materials.
  • Spectra-Physics IceFyre® FS IR200 laser, an industrial femtosecond laser offering >200 W power in the infrared (IR) for high-quality, high-throughput micromachining.
  • Spectra-Physics Vanguard™ One™ UV125 laser, a compact, air-cooled, low-noise UV laser for bio-instrumentation and metrology applications.
  • Spectra-Physics Spitfire® Ace CEP6™ technology, the most advanced carrier-envelope phase (CEP) stabilization capability, delivers record-low CEP noise for attosecond science.
  • Newport Replicated Freeform Mirrors, a non-rotationally symmetric reflective mirror platform for use in advanced optical systems to remove the optical design constraint of rotational symmetry enabling optical designers to increase the efficiency and precision of optical systems.
  • Newport 819-SL-1.5-800PS and 819-IG-1.5-800PS, 1.5-inch, high-speed response, multi-functional integrating spheres; multiple measurement capabilities in a single integrating sphere device.
  • Newport 818-RAD-UVA Irradiance and Dosage Sensor, a sensor with a flat spectral response that allows measurement of narrowband and broadband sources (LEDs, lasers) in the spectral range without the need to know the exact wavelength.
  • Newport 845-PE-RS Virtual Optical Power and Energy Meter provides easy integration into automation systems (e.g. PLC) using RS-232. It also turns a PC or laptop into a full-fledged Newport laser power and energy meter.
  • Ophir BeamSquared® SP204S M2 Propagation Analyzer, a compact and fully automated tool for measuring the propagation characteristics of 266 to 1100 nm CW and pulsed laser systems with increased sensitivity and resolution in the NIR region.
  • Ophir SP203P Beam Analysis Camera, a phosphor-coated CMOS sensor for measuring wavelengths between 1440 – 1605 nm.
  • Ophir BeamWatch® Plus, a non-contact, high-power beam profiler that measures focus shift, M2, focus spot size down to 45µm, and position of industrial lasers operating in the VIS and NIR range.
  • Ophir BeamWatch 130, a non-contact, high-power beam profiler that measures focus shift, M2, focus spot size down to 130µm, and position of industrial lasers operating in NIR range.
  • Ophir BeamPeek™ Software for Field Technicians, easy-to-use laser beam analysis for optimizing Additive Manufacturing processes.
  • Ophir StarViewer iOS App for Ariel stand-alone sensor for measurement of high power lasers.

"We are pleased to be at the forefront of technological advances that are increasing the pace of innovation in the photonics industry," 

Dr. Mark Gitin, Executive Vice President & General Manager, Photonics Solutions Division, MKS Instruments.

Mark adds, "Our new high-power nanosecond UV and femtosecond lasers lead the industry in capability and cost-performance and are great examples of the innovation we are bringing to the market."
