TECHSPEC® Nd: YAG Laser Line λ/20 UV Fused Silica Right Angle Prisms Ideal for Beam Steering

Prisms provide minimal wavefront distortion

June 21, 2018, Barrington, NJ, USA-Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces TECHSPEC® Nd:YAG Laser Line λ/20 UV Fused Silica Right Angle Prisms. These versatile prisms offer a combination of precision surface flatness and guaranteed laser damage threshold anti-reflective coatings. They are ideally suited for a wide variety of beam steering applications with minimal wavefront distortion. These λ/20 right angle prisms are manufactured by EO, making them available as both standard or custom products.

λ/20 Surface Flatness with 20-10 Surface Quality

TECHSPEC® Nd:YAG Laser Line λ/20 UV Fused Silica Right Angle Prisms provide precision λ/20 surface flatness and 20-10 surface quality. They are designed for transmission through the legs of the prism, exhibiting less than 0.25% reflection for fiber and Nd:YAG applications. The prisms feature a ±15 arcsec angular tolerance, which ensures consistent alignment for volume integration.

Laser Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT) ideal for Laser Optics applications

Manufactured from a fused silica substrate, TECHSPEC® Nd:YAG Laser Line λ/20 UV Fused Silica Right Angle Prisms have an anti-reflective Nd:YAG coating with laser damage thresholds of 3 J/cm2 at 266nm, 7.5 J/cm2 at 355nm, 10 J/cm2 at 532nm, and 15 J/cm2 at 1064nm for minimized reflection at common laser wavelengths. The prisms are available in sizes from 5-25mm. RoHS Compliant TECHSPEC® Nd:YAG Laser Line λ/20 UV Fused Silica Right Angle Prisms are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
