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.






separates the polarizations coated on plates for
- thin film polarizer (TFP),
also available for
- cube polarizer
- broad band polarizer
works also as
- polarization sampler

A Polarizer can also work as polarization sampler.


Thin Film Polarizer
separates s- from p-polarized light, effective on a plate with a fixed AOI, available from 45° to 74°, commonly used at Brewster angle.

Cube Polarizer Coating
separates s- from p-polarized light, effective inside a cube made out of two prisms, commonly with AOI = 45°.

Broad Band Polarizer
separates s- from p-polarized light for a broad band area, effective on a plate or inside a cube with a fixed AOI.
