TECHSPEC® Laser-Line Coated Precision Aspheric Lenses Designed for High Power Nd: YAG Lasers



Lenses offer high damage thresholds



Barrington, N.J. – Edmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces its new TECHSPEC® Laser-Line Coated Precision Aspheric Lenses. These lenses, offering high damage thresholds, are designed to maximize performance in high power Nd: YAG laser applications.



Designs minimize spherical aberration

RoHS compliant TECHSPEC Laser-Line Coated Precision Lenses feature precision aspheric designs that minimize spherical aberration, which decreases laser spot size and maintains high power per area. The lenses have high performance Laser V-coatings with absolute reflectance of less than 0.25% at their design wavelength. The coatings have been optimized for the most popular Nd: YAG wavelengths and offer high damage thresholds. A UV fused silica substrate is highly resistant to thermal expansion.



Twelve different V-coated lenses available

TECHSPEC Laser-Line Coated Precision Lenses are available in twelve different models. They are offered in a 15 mm diameter size with numerical apertures (NA) of 0.60 with design wavelengths of 355 nm, 532 nm and 1064 nm and a 0.50 NA with design wavelengths of 355 nm, 532 nm and 1064 nm. A 25 mm diameter size has a 0.42 NA at design wavelengths of 355 nm, 532 nm and 1064 nm, as well as 0.50 NA models at 355 nm, 532 nm and 1064 nm. TECHSPEC Laser-Line Coated Precision Lenses are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value. Custom diameters and coatings at your required wavelength are also offered to create a precision aspheric lens that meets your needs.
