Laser Components has added two converter cards for infrared radiation to its range of conversion screens. The LDT-008TL is a versatile tool used to convert laser radiation from 800-1,600nm into red visible light (except for the incident range of 950-980nm for which it emits green). There is no need for charging, and it has a minimum sensitivity of approximately 0.5mW/cm2 at 1,064nm in a darkened room. The damage threshold for short-term exposure is around 20W/cm2 at 1,064nm.
In addition to this, the company has introduced the IR sensor cards for visualisation of laser radiation in the wavelength range from 1.5µm to 20µm, which are ideally suited for use with Hol:YAG, Er:YAG and CO2 lasers. Available in high power options for up to 50W/cm2 and 120W/cm2 respectively, there is also the option for a screen with two active areas, a high power, and a low power for up to 8W/cm2.
