Laser Components is now offering near IR coatings using its new sputter coating process.  

This allows Laser Components to produce precise, compact layers with a very low wavelength drift.  This process along with the company’s on-line monitoring system produces repeatable coatings with complex layer designs, resulting in the lowest scatter loss and a high reflection of >99.99 per cent, while achieving very high laser damage thresholds.

The sputtering process is a cold method that makes it suitable for temperature and moisture sensitive substrates. Laser Components’ experience combined with its coating processes allows the company to produce UV coatings with good performance and high damage thresholds. For specialist requirements, Laser Components are able to offer special substrates to work with particular lasers such as a fused silica designed for excimer grade lasers, thus helping to maximise the efficiency of the coating.
