August 2, 2017 - A line of CO2 laser optics optimized for cutting and etching thin metals when fabricating filters, strainers, and related applications is available from Laser Research Optics of Providence, Rhode Island.
Laser Research CO2 Optics include lenses that feature coatings with < 0.2% total absorption values to keep them cooler and silicon turning mirrors which have an enhanced DMBR coating to provide up to 99.6% reflectivity. Optimized for 10.6 microns, they are designed to promote sharper cuts with fewer passes when cutting and etching thin metals.
Suited for OEMs or as field replacements for end-users, Laser Research CO2 Lenses are available off-the-shelf in 0.5” to 1.5” dia. sizes with focal lengths from 1.0” to 25” in 0.5” increments and the Silicon Silver DMBR coated turning mirrors come in 0.75” to 3.0” dia. sizes from 2 to 10 mm thick. All meet ISO-10110 specifications for optical elements.
