Laser Research Optics has introduced a line of molybdenum mirrors, silicon and copper phase retardation reflectors, and zero
phase reflectors for use with 10.6-µm CO2 lasers. The mirrors are intrinsically hard and exhibit an average reflectance of >98.1%
at 10.6 µm. The phase retardation reflectors feature a l/4 phase reflectance thin- film coating that converts the linearly polarized
laser beam into a circular beam. The zero phase reflectors maintain the circular polarization of the beam's delivery system.
