- Excimer Info
- An excimer laser is a multi-gas mixture, dedicated to the generation and /or production of a single wavelength. In order to achieve maximum safety, improve reproducibility, and guarantee optimum laser performance, the use of a premix has become a laser industry standard.
Linde Gases premixes provide the following advantages:
- Very low percentages of toxic, corrosive halogen gases
- Precise gas mixtures analyzed and guaranteed to each manufacturer's specifications
- Minimal space requirements
- Lowered cylinder costs: shipping, storage, rental
- Fewer gas lines and gas handling equipment
- Superior reproducibility
The term "Excimer" refers to the rare gas / halide molecule. There are four wavelengths (spectral lines) that can be generated from Fluorine laser gas mixtures and two generated from Hydrogen Chloride laser gas mixtures.
- Argon is a rare atmospheric gas which is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. It is considered extremely inert and forms no known chemical compounds. The concentration of argon gas in the atmosphere by volume is 0.93%. Argon gas has numerous applications, including neon signs, lasers, incandescent and fluorescent lamps, electronic tubes, window insulation, welding, and semiconductor applications. Numerous purities of argon gas are available for specific industrial purposes. ::: Argon Brochure
- Fluorine Excimer
- Excimer lasers are multi-gas lasers. Output wavelength is a function of the rare gas / halogen combination. Excimer is the name of the rare gas / halide molecule. There are four wavelengths (spectral lines) that can be generated from fluorine laser gas mixtures. ::: Fluorine Excimer Brochure
- Helium is a rare atmospheric gas which is colorless, odorless, tasteless, nontoxic, nonflammable, and only slightly soluble in water. The concentration of helium gas in the atmosphere by volume percent is 5.24 x 10-4. Helium gas is principally shipped and used in either gaseous or liquid form for nuclear reactors, semiconductors, lasers, light bulbs, superconductivity, instrumentation, medical applications, cryogenics, MRI and R & D laboratories. ::: Helium Brochure
