April 20, 2016, Barrington, N.J. - Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces new TECHSPEC® LC (Low Cost) Fixed YAG Beam Expanders. They use a simple, two-element Galilean design to provide cost effective, diffraction limited performance at the design beam diameter of 1 -2mm, the exact value dependent on model. Beam expanders are used to increase the diameter of a collimated input beam to a larger collimated, less divergent output beam and are ideal in applications including laser scanning, laser materials processing, interferometry and remote sensing.

Custom magnifications and wavelengths available

TECHSPEC LC (Low Cost) Fixed YAG Beam Expanders provide a compact design with 24 fixed magnification options from 2X to 10X, offered at standard YAG wavelengths of 355nm, 532nm, and 1064nm. If desired, custom magnifications and wavelengths are available. All of these beam expanders are offered with an M22 x 0.75 mounting thread. Adapters are also available and sold separately for the C-mount and M30 x 1 versions.

Designed for easy integration

RoHS compliant TECHSPEC LC (Low Cost) Fixed YAG Beam Expanders are designed for easy integration, featuring a compact fixed form factor and a diffraction limited transmitted wavefront. Volume discounts are available for OEM quantities to facilitate a wide variety of system integrations. TECHSPEC LC (Low Cost) Fixed YAG Beam Expanders are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
