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.






Sapphire (cryst. Al2O3)
is free of absorption in the range 240nm-4µm. Optical components generally have C-cut (001-orientation).
It stands out by hardness, strength, chemical and thermal stability and is often used as high pressure and high temperature window material and for view ports. Compared to Fused Silica it has 20 times higher heat conductivity. In addition it is insoluble in most common acids.
