Discover our range of technologies
Laser optical components are used in a wide variety of applications including laser source manufacturing, laser instrumentation, and laser material processing. These components use specific substrates, coatings, and a combination of the two to provide superior performance at specific laser wavelengths or over a range of wavelengths. Some laser optics feature laser damage thresholds designed for high-power pulsed or CW lasers.
This range of technology includes a variety of laser lenses, laser mirrors, laser filters, and other components designed for laser use. Whatever your laser optical component requirements are, we have the right technology for your unique technical design.
Polarisation optics change the state of polarisation of incident radiation, whereas polarisation instruments control and measure the polarisation state. Polarisation optics operate over the UV, visible, or IR spectral ranges and include polarisers, wave plates/ retarders, quartz-wedge depolarisers, liquid crystal polymer depolarisers, and vortex retarders.
Within our polarisation optical components portfolio, we offer a selection of waveplates. These are made from high-quality materials that exhibit consistent birefringence properties. They are designed to meet the needs of applications such as tuneable laser modules, multiple laser line systems, and broad-spectrum sources. Polarisation optics are important for both intra and extra cavity use. We also offer a range of thin-film polarisers to save weight and volume within devices.
Another technology we provide is polarising cubes for both medium to high energy applications such as laser-beam separation and combination, and optical isolation. Polarising beam splitter cubes are easy-to-handle, high contrast, and high extinction ratio polariser.
Our glan-type polarisers are mounted polarising prisms used for applications that require broad spectral ranges, high extinction ratios, and/or high polarisation purities. These are designed for precisely “cleaning” the polarisation of a light source, or for the attenuation of a polarised light source.
