Alpine Research Optics Capabilities - Fabrication Since our founding, ARO has concentrated on laser optics. Based on your application — medical, scientific, research or defense — our long-established fabrication and coating processes optimize damage threshold, lifetime, spectral performance, and environmental durability. Wavelengths typically range from 193 nm to 2 µm. Components include mirrors, windows, filters, polarizers, and beamsplitters. We are well known for our ultrafast optics and more recently producing large aperture plano optics.

We have also recently installed a state-of-the-art IBS chamber complete with an optical monitoring system. 

Our IBS chamber is equipped with an optical monitor and larger targets, so it can be used to produce more difficult coatings requiring precise layer control and longer coating times. IBS technology is well suited for coating in the MWIR region of the electromagnetic spectrum and as well as for filter coatings requiring sharper cut-offs. Because IBS coating deposition temperatures are lower, there is a reduced change in surface figure on higher aspect ratio substrates.ARO reuqest a quote banner We expect our new IBS technology to allow us to create coatings we have never been able to provide before. The high density and low loss exhibited by Ion Beam Sputtering coatings make them perfectly fit for laser optics.

We also have a catalog available where we stock a variety of high-performance laser optics trusted by universities and national laboratories around the world. Some of our more popular items include our 193 nm laser mirrors, our high energy mirrors, and our E-Max and B-Max TI:Sapphire mirrors. Visit arocorp.com/catalog to view all our options.
