1 µm lasers are lasers that operate at the 1 µm wavelength. These lasers can be used for a wide range of different processes; welding, cutting, localized heating, and more. They provide a high amount of power and extreme accuracy.
In order to get the best results from a 1 µm laser, the laser system must be built using high quality, specialized optical components, designed to work effectively at high laser power and power density levels. These optics must have minimal absorption and reflection losses, to avoid impairing the performance of the laser system, or damaging it, through increased temperature.
Using decades of experience, advanced manufacturing techniques, and cutting-edge optical coating technologies, Ophir’s line of 1 μm laser optics for high power fiber and solid-state lasers meet these requirements.
Ophir’s products for 1 µm lasers include protective windows, spherical and aspherical lenses, lens assemblies for collimating and focusing laser beams, as well as zoom lenses for laser cutting heads. Optical lenses for 1 µm lasers are made from fused silica, with specialized AR coatings that have the lowest possible absorption and reflection losses, to ensure the best high power laser performance.
