Laser Components now offers a range of Optometrics' hard-coated laser line long pass filters that use its Quasar technology to deliver a transmission of >90 per cent with deep OD6 blocking.
These hard-coated filters are traditionally very costly due to the slow sputter coating process, but Laser Components is able to offer these at a much more competitive price without affecting performance.
It has a range of standard filters with cut on wavelengths at 355, 488, 514, 532, 633, 785 and 1064nm. Custom designs are also available for any wavelength between 355nm and 1064nm. The edge steepness performance is <1.5 per cent while the damage threshold is about >1Jcm2 with a 10ns pulse at 532nm.
