TECHSPEC® High Power Nd:YAG Laser Mirrors feature High Damage Thresholds
IBS coatings provide up to 99.9% reflectivity
June 17, 2015, Barrington, N.J.
- Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of precision optical components, introduces its new TECHSPEC® High Power Nd:YAG Laser Mirrors
. These high reflectance mirrors feature industry-leading, all-dielectric Ion Beam Sputtered (IBS) coatings which deliver high laser damage thresholds for demanding applications in high power beam delivery and laser beam steering.
Lot-traceable coatings documented in individual Certificate of Compliance
Each Laser Mirror is individually packaged with its own Certificate of Compliance, including batch traceability to the exact mirror coating lot. These new high-performance IBS mirror coatings provide increased laser damage threshold and reflectance up to 99.9% at 45 degree incidence. Edmund Optics is also pleased to include laser engraved markings on each Laser Mirror, identifying the Edmund Optics stock number, design wavelength, and indicators pointing to the coated mirror surface.
"In demanding YAG Laser applications, high performance Laser Mirrors are fundamental optical components. We tried to consider every detail to provide a laser mirror solution that is technically robust, with lot traceable coatings and convenient packaging in the most popular sizes used today," notes Anthony Artigliere, Director of the Optics Business Unit. "We have also 'sharpened our pencils' to offer these new Laser Mirrors at very attractive prices for cost-conscious users in this market space."
Excellent thermal stability provided with fused silica substrates
These UV grade fused silica mirror substrates are polished on both sides, which allows a user to monitor transmitted light leakage through the backside in the most demanding laser applications. The mirror coated surface meets stringent λ/10 flatness (or surface accuracy) and 10-5 scratch-dig.
Twelve new Laser Mirror models include the YAG fundamental at 1064 nm, the second harmonic at 532 nm, and UV versions at 355 and 266 nm. Sizes are available in inch-scale formats of 0.5 (12.7 mm), 1.0 (25.4 mm) and 2.0 inch (50.8 mm) diameters.
