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.






UV - Fused Silica
(amorphous silicon dioxide) is produced synthetically from high purity Silicon by flame hydrolysis. It differs by its high UV-transmittance from natural Fused Silica, molten from crystalline Quartz.

Further advantages of UV-FS are absence of bubbles and impurities and in consequence of fluorescence.

Besides the broader transmission range, advantages over N-BK7 are:
– coefficient of thermal expansion is more than one order lower, providing high thermal stability and resistance to thermal shocks,
–– thermal operating range is up to 800°C,
–– greater hardness and resistance against scratches
–– very high resistance to radiation darkening.
