Copper Vapour Lasers
Copper vapour lasers utilising thyratron technology are used in machining applications. The important operating parameters are high frequency (>10 kHz) and high inverse voltages which place heavy demands on the thyratron design.
CO2 Lasers (DC and RF excited)
Our gridded tubes (triodes and tetrodes) are used in the power supplies of industrial CO2 lasers, either to control or pulse the HV DC supply (DC excitation) or to generate RF power (RF excitation). In DC excitation, the laser gas is excited by a high DC voltage, controlled by a suitable vacuum device, capable of working at voltages of up to 35kV. In RF excitation, the laser gas is excited by an RF field generated by our gridded tubes.
Eximer lasers are used in a wide range of applications, including scientific investigations in the biological field, delicate medical treatments (e.g. eye surgery) and semiconductor processing. Operating conditions are generally 30 kV with up to 10 kA peak current pulses but only of a few hundred nanoseconds duration.
