Edmund Optics introduces additional coatings and sizes for Techspec Nd:YAG Laser Line Mirrors

Edmund Optics has introduced additional coatings and sizes for its Techspec Nd:YAG Laser Line Mirrors. These versatile laser line mirrors provide the high reflectance, surface quality, and accuracy that is needed for a wide variety of demanding Nd:YAG and Nd:YLF laser applications, including high power beam delivery and laser beam steering up to the fourth harmonic at 266nm. 

Techspec Nd:YAG Laser Line Mirrors provide damage thresholds up to 5J/cm2 at 355nm, 10ns pulses. These durable laser line mirrors have a dense reflective coating and damage thresholds specific to the laser type and wavelength. The high-performance mirrors offer greater than 99,98 per cent reflectivity at 1,064 nm. The mirrors are available in 0° and 45° AOI options and a variety of harmonic designs. Dual band mirrors are offered to reflect the fundamental and frequency doubled laser lines. They may also be used for reflecting the 1,064nm fundamental line and its alignment beam.

Techspec Nd:YAG Laser Line Mirrors are manufactured using a UV grade fused silica substrate for excellent thermal and temporal stability. The reflective surface meets λ/10 surface accuracy and 10-5 scratch-dig surface quality. All-dielectric Ion Beam Sputtered (IBS) coated options are available.
