Press Release Summary:
Custom-manufactured CO2 laser optics, available for tunable lasers and instrumentation applications, come in sizes from Â½–1 in. OD and 0.070–0.12 in. thick. Featuring laser-grade ZnSe, laser optics have 40-20 scratch-dig surface finish per MIL-PRF-13830 and 1/40 wave max flatness @10.6 Âµm on 2 faces. Parallelism is 3 arc/mins, and applications include cutting, welding, drilling, marking, and materials processing.
Original Press Release:
CO2 LASER Optics for 9.3µm to 10.6µm LASERS
Custom manufactured CO2 laser optics for wavelengths other than the standard 10.6µm, for tunable lasers, and instrumentation applications are being introduced by Laser Research Optics of Providence, Rhode Island.
Laser Research CO2 Laser Optics can be custom manufactured in 9.3µm to 10.6µm wavelengths in sizes from 1/2” to 1” O.D. and 0.070” to 0.12” thick. They are ideally suited for lasers operating at wavelengths that provide better performance in cutting plastic materials which are highly absorptive at a particular wavelength, such as Kapton and PET, claims the firm.
Featuring laser-grade ZnSe, Laser Research CO2 Laser Optics have a 40-20 scratch-dig surface finish per MIL-PRF-13830 and 1/40 wave max. flatness @10.6µm on two faces. Parallelism is 3 arc/mins. Applications include cutting, welding, drilling, marking, and materials processing.
Laser Research Custom CO2 Laser Optics operating at 9.3µm to 10.6µm wavelengths are priced according to size, coatings, and quantity.
