Lenses and optics

Aspheric lenses

LightPath Technologies has introduced a line of moulded glass aspheric lenses designed specifically for the laser tool market

Ion beam sputtering

LaserOptik has introduced an ion beam sputtering (IBS) service, providing advanced coating technology that can satisfy critical demands on laser optics, such as complex filters or high power supermirrors.

Glass rods

Schott has introduced glass rods with diameters of less than 1mm and up to 1,000mm in length, in addition to its existing shapes, in order to support the miniaturisation of optical applications.

g2T-Scan scanning beam-profiler

LIMO has introduced its g2T-Scan two-in-one beam profiler and scanning system. The system can transform Gaussian beams into homogeneous 'top hat' profiles, uses galvo mirrors and an f-theta objective lens

Techspec telecentric lenses

Edmund Optics has introduced its Techspec range of high resolution, highly telecentric lenses, for use with 5-megapixel sensors. The lenses provide up to 2/3-inch sensor coverage

HarmoniXX frequency converters

APE has introduced the HarmoniXX product line - a series of frequency converters for mode-locked ultrafast lasers, particularly Ti:sapphire lasers but also suitable for other wavelength ranges

F-Theta scanning lenses

Edmund Optics (EO) has expanded its line of F-Theta scanning lenses for laser material processing applications. Efficiency, system lifetime, and uniformity of materials processing have been improved

Optical coating for excimer laser optics

Saint-Gobain Crystals has introduced a new highly reflective coating, specifically intended for excimer laser-based scanning, suitable for a range of incident angles and broad wavelength bandwidths

Infrared optical components

Edmund Optics has begun to offer standard, off-the-shelf infrared optical components specifically tailored for use in the defence industry, available manufactured in a range of substrates
