Femtosecond laser mirrors by Semrock

Semrock_531_web

ROCHESTER, NY – The first two products in the line of PulseLine femtosecond laser optics have been released by Semrock, Inc. These 45° turning mirrors are ion bean sputtering (IBS) - coated for maximum durability and feature high reflectivity (R > 99%), low dispersion and a high laser damage threshold over a broad wavelength range. The FS01-MTiS45S-25.4 and FS01-MTiS45P-25.4 turning mirrors are available in a standard 1 inch (25.4 mm) size. They are ideal for applications where femtosecond laser beams need to be guided from the output of the laser head to the sample, and are especially useful in multiphoton microscopy and femtosecond laser spectroscopy.

PRESS RELEASE

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Semrock, Inc., released the first two products in the soon-to-be expanded line of PulseLine™ femtosecond laser optics. These 45° turning mirrors are IBS-coated for maximum durability and feature high reflectivity (R > 99%), low dispersion and a high laser damage threshold over a broad wavelength range.

The FS01-MTiS45S-25.4 and FS01-MTiS45P-25.4 turning mirrors reflect light at a 45 degree angle of incidence and are available immediately in a standard 1 inch (25.4 mm) size. They are ideal for applications where femtosecond laser beams need to be guided from the output of the laser head to the sample, and are especially useful in multiphoton microscopy and femtosecond laser spectroscopy. These are ideal for covering the full Ti:sapphire laser tuning range of 680-1080 nm. 

As a result of the IBS coating manufacturing process, these mirrors have very low absorption and scattering losses and will withstand high laser intensities. Third party measurements using 20 ns pulsed light at 1064 nm revealed LDT values in excess of 20 J/cm2.

Always innovating, Semrock will release more PulseLine products later in 2012 to meet the needs of demanding applications in ultrafast laser science and applications.
