  • 500 Million shot laser optics​

Image Data at the Speed of L​ight​

The Iridia is a purpose-built laser ablation system designed for high-speed imaging applications that can take your overnight projects and complete them in minutes. Iridia produces high stability laser energy at higher speeds to make full use of the latest ICP-MS te​chnology. The Cobalt sample cell offers single millisecond analytical performance.

Iridia features a 500 Hz laser, custom-designed for Teledyne Photon Machines to give ultimate reliability and performance, backed by a two year warranty and a 1 billion shot guarantee. 

The integrated, fully enclosed and actively vented gas cabinet holds all the necessary excimer premix and helium gas bottles. The patented ExiCheck gas exchanger automatically exchanges the ArF gas on a pre-set interval with no user interaction required.
