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.
