PROVIDENCE, R.I., Aug. 29, 2012 — A line of CO2 laser beam delivery optics for use with high- and low-power lasers is available from Laser Research Optics.
The CO2 beam-steering optics include beam combiners, beamsplitters, ZnSe output couplers and front mirrors, silicon and molybdenum turning mirrors, silicon and copper phase retardation reflectors, and germanium end- and zero phase reflectors. They are suitable for use with 25- to 200-W marking, engraving and scribing lasers.
Optimized for 10.6 µm, the optics are offered in 0.6- to 3-in.-diameter sizes with reflectivity up to 99%. The output couplers provide reflectivity tolerances to ±1%, and the phase retarders and reflectors are offered in a variety of thicknesses with different coatings to achieve the desired phase shift.
