Protecting Your Lasers

Optical Isolators and Coatings

Toptica Logo

Join us for a joint discussion with TOPTICA Photonics about how to protect your laser system from damage using optical isolators and coatings designed for high laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT). The drive towards higher-power lasers makes these considerations more important than ever before.

Prevent System Feedback, Destabilization, and Catastrophic Failure

We invite you to join this 45-minute webinar presented by Dr. Adam Heiniger, Optical Isolator Product Manager and Ultrafast Applications Scientist at TOPTICA Photonics, and Dr. Sara Castillo, Laser Optics Specialist at Edmund Optics. At the end of this webinar, participants will have a strong understanding of:

  • Why protecting your laser system is critical for both performance and safety
  • How to utilize optical isolators to minimize feedback and prevent damage
  • Key considerations for choosing the correct coatings to protect optics and improve performance
