It is no accident that the name LEXEL™ is synonymous with EXCELLENCE in ion lasers. LEXEL™ lasers were first produced in 1972 by a group of leading laser engineers who were convinced that there was a growing need for truly stable, reliable, long life ion lasers. 

In developing LEXEL™'s basic laser design, special attention was devoted to eliminating the problems that were the cause of laser failures and poor performance.  Cambridge Lasers engineers have retained the best of past developments and have added creative new design features.  This resulted in a line of LEXEL™ ion lasers that are the most advanced, most stable, and most reliable laser systems available today.  

LEXEL™ lasers are operating throughout the United States, Europe and the Far East in virtually every type of ion laser application. Operating environments range from the most stringent laboratory to the most abusive industrial factory. The performance year after year continues to be nothing less than outstanding. Wherever the best in performance is desired, knowledgeable ion laser users specify LEXEL™ EXCELLENCE.

Selecting the proper LEXEL™ laser

There are many different LEXEL™ models of argon and krypton ion lasers plus a broad line of options and accessories. These lasers produce an extremely wide range of laser wavelengths, power levels and beam parameters.  Click here to visit our page, listing our current model of lasers.

The "Tech Info" pages at this website describe how ion lasers work, and go into great detail on the many features that make LEXEL™ lasers so special. This information should aid in selecting the proper LEXEL™ laser model, associated options and accessories required to meet your particular application needs.
