Edmund Optics (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces its new Broadband IR Laser Mirrors. These mirrors feature high damage thresholds and are ideal for demanding infrared (IR) laser applications, such as those using quantum cascade or CO2 lasers.
Broadband IR Laser Mirrors utilize a copper substrate, which significantly increases their laser damage threshold to 50kW/cm², typical. The copper substrate dissipates the excess heat generated from high power IR lasers, giving it superior mechanical stability when compared to other substrates.
RoHS compliant Broadband IR Laser Mirrors feature greater than 98 per cent reflectivity from 2-20μm with a surface accuracy of 1/20λ at 10.6μm with a Clear Aperture (CA) of 90 per cent. Broadband IR Laser Mirrors are available in both 25 mm and 50 mm diameter sizes; they are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
