Durable, Low Loss Laser Mirrors feature >99.9% reflectivity.

November 14, 2014

For applications requiring max reflectance at given wavelength range and angle of incidence, Low Loss Laser Mirrors feature damage thresholds of 12 J/cm², 10 nm at 1,064 nm. Ion beam sputtered coatings promote repeatabilty and tight tolerances, while UV Fused Silica substrate and 1/8 λ surface accuracy help maintain optimal image quality. Designed for 0° or 45° angles of incidence, RoHS-compliant optical mirrors are available with diameters of 25.4 mm for 355, 532, and 1,064 nm wavelengths. Read More

Cube Beamsplitters target uncollimated light sources.

October 10, 2014

With wire grid polarizer cemented between 2 right angle prisms made of N-BK7 substrate, Wire Grid Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters are designed for applications using uncollimated light, including broadband white light sources. Anti-reflection coating is applied to each face of beamsplitter, which provides less than 0.5% average reflection per surface. Maintaining spectral contrast from 400–700 nm over cone angle of +25°, beamsplitters provide greater than 75% transmission of P-polarized light. Read More

Telecentric Measuring Lenses offer in-line illumination.

September 30, 2014

Available in 0.5, 0.75, and 2.0 X primary magnifications, ECHSPEC® Silver Series is optimized for both on-line and off-line machine vision production environments that require accurate measurements. Double telecentric lenses correct perspective errors that yield magnification variations through depth of field. Units feature non-focusing mechanical design with lockable, adjustable iris control. With in-line illumination port, lenses are suited for inspection of specular and semi-specular parts. Read More

Radial Polarization Converters reduce laser beam spot size.

September 4, 2014

Radial Polarization Converters, manufactured from UV fused silica substrate, are S-waveplates that convert linear polarization to radial or azimuthal polarization. Able to be used to create optical vortex or doughnut beam, products produce radially polarized light, feature 5 mm apertures, and come in 632, 800, and 1,030 nm wavelength models with 25.4 mm OD. Other features include damage thresholds of 20 J/cm² at 3.5 ns and 1,064 nm, 20-10 surface quality, and 1/8 λ surface accuracy. Read More
