Maximize Performance of Nd:YAG Lasers with New Dual-Band Laser Optics from Edmund Optics®

BARRINGTON, N.J., Aug. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edmund Optics®, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of optical components, has just introduced new dual-band laser mirrors and windows for Nd:YAG lasers using visible guide beams. Because 1064nm Nd:YAG beams are invisible, 532nm or 635-670nm visible guide beams are often used to ensure that the laser is properly aligned. Anti-reflection coatings designed for these multiple wavelengths, high laser damage thresholds (LDTs), and 10-5 surface quality for reduced scatter make these dual-band optics ideal for Nd:YAG systems.

The TECHSPEC® Dual Band Laser Line Mirrors offer 99% reflectivity at both their infrared and visible wavelengths. Options are available for 532nm or 635-670nm guide beams. The TECHSPEC® Dual-Band Anti-Reflection (AR) Laser Windows feature <0.25% reflection at 532nm and <0.1% reflection at 1064nm, significantly increasing laser throughput. Both the mirrors and windows use high-precision fused silica substrates for excellent thermal stability and are ideal for both laboratory and industrial applications.
