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.

or, to minimize back side reflection of beam splitters, used as
- rear side coating


HR
Show HR coatings
High Reflection Coating
for highest reflection, used as
- cavity mirror
- full reflector
-
bending mirror
also available as
- metallic mirror


PR
Show PR coatings
Partial Reflection Coating
for splitting or reducing the incoming light, used as
- partial reflector,
- output coupler,
- attenuator,
- beam splitter,
also available as
- non polarizing beam splitter


Filter
Show separating filters
HR / PR + AR Coating
Combination of AR and HR or PR coatings for separating wavelengths, used as
