Broadband IR Laser Mirrors feature Copper Substrate to dissipate excess heat

Mirrors feature high damage thresholds

1/14/2015, Barrington, NJ USA   —

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces its new Broadband IR Laser Mirrors. These mirrors feature high damage thresholds and are ideal for demanding infrared (IR) laser applications, such as those using quantum cascade or CO2 lasers.

Copper has superior mechanical stability vs. other substrates

Broadband IR Laser Mirrors utilize a copper substrate, which significantly increases their laser damage threshold to 50kW/cm2, typical. The copper substrate dissipates the excess heat generated from high power IR lasers, giving it superior mechanical stability when compared to other substrates.

Greater than 98% reflectivity from 2-20 μm

RoHS compliant Broadband IR Laser Mirrors feature greater than 98% reflectivity from 2-20 μm with a surface accuracy of λ /20 at 10.6 μm with a Clear Aperture (CA) of 90%. Broadband IR Laser Mirrors are available in both 25 mm and 50 mm diameter sizes; they are in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.
