Custom manufactured CO2 laser optics for wavelengths other than the standard 10.6µm, for tunable lasers, and instrumentation applications are being introduced by Laser Research Optics of Providence, Rhode Island.
Laser Research CO2 Laser Optics can be custom manufactured in 9.3µm to 10.6µm wavelengths in sizes from 1/2” to 1” O.D. and 0.070” to 0.12” thick. They are ideally suited for lasers operating at wavelengths that provide better performance in cutting plastic materials which are highly absorptive at a particular wavelength, such as Kapton and PET, claims the firm.
