4 new IBS coating machines

Double IBS capacity in 2015
LASEROPTIK enlarges from four to eight industrial IBS systems e.g. for ultrafast optics, complex filter designs or in the UV. With a custom built giant machine, LASEROPTIK also offers coatings on substrates up to 2 metres in length, made by IBS.

IBS coatings up to 2 m

LASEROPTIK now designs and produces dispersion-matched pairs of broadband chirped mirrors for even better GDD compen-sation.





has a very broad transmission range from VUV to FIR and is used as window and substrate material. Compared to MgF2 it has an isotropic structure, lower hardness and is sensitive to thermal shocks.
If the condensation of water vapor is prevented, CaF2 windows can be used for several years in the laboratory.
CaF2begins to soften at 600 °C, the reaction with atmospheric moisture will take place above this temperature.
