Ophir Optronics’ CO2 Optics Division Announces Innovative 1-Micron Optics
World’s second largest OEM supplier provides the ultimate in fused-silica, UV-grade lenses and mirrors for both fiber and disk 1-micron lasers
Jerusalem, Israel, 7 November 2012 – Ophir Optronics Ltd., a global leader in precision infrared optics, photonics instrumentation and 3D non-contact measurement equipment, announced today that its CO2 Optics Division has developed the world’s most innovative optics for use in high-power, 1-micron laser systems.
Ophir’s OEM-approved fused-silica lenses deliver the best performance for 1-micron lasers with ultra-low absorption (<50 ppm at 1.03-1.07 microns), a focal length tolerance of ±0.5% and a laser-damage threshold of >10J. Ophir has also developed superior HR (High-Reflection) mirror coatings for high-power fiber lasers that provide over 99.7% reflectivity at a range of 1.03-1.07 microns and over 80% reflection at 650-670nm.
“We deliver the most compelling cost-benefit ratio in the industry,” said Yehiel Plaut, Sales and Marketing Director for the CO2 Optics Division of Ophir Optronics. “Extensive testing by world-leading OEMs has shown our 1-micron optics to be best-of-breed, with outstanding durability and focus stability.”
