4 new IBS coating machines

Double IBS capacity in 2015
LASEROPTIK enlarges from four to eight industrial IBS systems e.g. for ultrafast optics, complex filter designs or in the UV. With a custom built giant machine, LASEROPTIK also offers coatings on substrates up to 2 metres in length, made by IBS.

IBS coatings up to 2 m





LASEROPTIK now designs and produces dispersion-matched pairs of broadband chirped mirrors for even better GDD compen-sation.

 

 

 



Refractive indices

 

LASEROPTIK is able to quote custom optics with these materials according your individual wishes.

A brief characterization of the substrate materials and the refractive indices at the laserlines are given with the transmission diagrammes.

Please consider that the curves show external transmission and include the fresnel reflection losses of the polished surfaces, as we measure it in our spectro-photometers. With high quality antireflection coatings these losses can be eliminated in limited wavelength ranges.

Samples of nearly all substrate materials, usable for laser coatings, is depicted on a transmission overview
