Broadband IR Laser Mirrors exhibit high damage thresholds.

January 15, 2015

Available in 25 and 50 mm dia sizes, RoHS-compliant Broadband IR Laser Mirrors feature copper substrate. Resulting laser damage threshold is 50 kW/cm² (typ), and substrate also dissipates excess laser-generated heat to promote mechanical stability. Suited for demanding IR laser applications, such as those using quantum cascade or CO2 lasers, mirrors feature greater than 98% reflectivity from 2–20 µm with surface accuracy of 1/20λ at 10.6 µm and Clear Aperture (CA) of 90%.

Broadband Polarizers feature wide acceptance angles of ±40°.

January 9, 2015

Available in 25.4 mm and 38.1 mm diameters with thickness of 2.2 mm, Broadband Polarizers provide consistent transmitted contrast from 300–2,700 nm. Linear units are made with fused silica substrate and feature wide operating temperature of -50 to 80°C. Suited for use with uncollimated light sources, RoHS-compliant polarizers target broadband applications from UV to SWIR, where wire grid polarizers are not practical. Read More

Broadband Anti-Reflection Coatings come as standard options.

December 17, 2014

YAG-BBAR broadband coating provides <1.0% reflectance per surface over its 500–1,100 nm wavelength range and absolute reflectance of <0.25% where it is optimized at 532 and 1,064 nm. Offering extended UV performance, VIS-EXT BBAR reduces reflection from 350–700 nm and provides <0.5% average reflectance per surface over its 350–700 nm range. Both broadband anti-reflection (BBAR) coatings are offered off-the-shelf on PCX lenses and can be applied to any uncoated optics. Read More

Interferometer Mirrors provide 99.8+% reflectivity. .

December 10, 2014

Providing greater than 99.8% reflectivity for S and P polarization, Gires-Tournois Interferometer Mirrors are optical standing wave-resonators that are primarily used in chirping applications such as pulse compression. Units use partially reflective front surface and highly reflective back surface to generate chromatic dispersion. Available in 4 RoHS-compliant, 25.4 mm diameter models in wavelengths from 780–820 nm and 1020–1060 nm, mirrors feature group delay dispersion from -250 to -600 fs². Read More

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

Telecentric Lenses work with up to 16 MP resolution sensors.

October 23, 2014

Designed for semiconductor and electronics inspection, measurement, and gauging applications, TECHSPEC® High Resolution Telecentric Lenses for 1 in. Sensors feature high-light throughput f/6 designs while exhibiting <0.1° telecentricity and <0.1% distortion. Double-sided telecentric design promotes sharp image while minimizing errors for optimal measurement accuracy. Lenses support up to 16 mm max diagonal sensors and accommodate up to 16 MP resolution sensors. 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
