Band-Selective Optics
from II-VI INFRARED

Most CO2 lasers operate in the wavelength band at 10.6 µm. This wavelength band is fine for cutting steel and certain other materials; however, other industrial laser applications -- such as plastics processing -- need a different, specific wavelength band for maximum production efficiency.

Modulators
from II-VI INFRARED

Electro-optic modulators are used in a variety of applications to either amplitude-modulate (AM modulation) or phase-modulate (FM modulation) a laser beam. Made of CdTe, they are used with HeNe lasers operating at 3.391 µm, CO lasers operating at 5 to 7 µm, and CO2 lasers operating at 9 to... [See More]

Rear Mirrors
from II-VI INFRARED

Rear mirrors, typically GaAs, Ge, or ZnSe, are partial reflectors with a very high reflection-to-transmission ratio (99.0% to 99.7%), and are key optical components in laser resonators or laser cavities. Rear mirrors, like output couplers, are a part of the lasing process. Thus, high reflectivity is... [See More]
