DSI Launches High Laser Damage Threshold (LDT) Coatings for Diode, DPSS & Gas Laser Systems

Published on 2013-10-17. Author : SpecialChem

SANTA ROSA, CA -- Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI®), one of the global manufacturers of highly durable thin film optical coatings, introduces a new line of high laser damage threshold (LDT) coatings. Designed for use with lasers and other high energy systems, these coatings are ideal for diode, diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS), and gas lasers. DSI's new products feature laser damage threshold levels as high as 25 MW/cm2

High laser damage threshold performance is coupled with the company's unique, field-proven ability to uniformly coat a wide variety of component geometries, including complex shapes. For example, DSI's new low insertion loss coatings feature extremely low reflectance with an AR coating performance rating of R< 0.25 percent, according to Dr. Michael Newell, Director of Sales and Marketing.

Dr. Newell reports, "DSI has successfully deployed the new line of LDT coatings in a variety of critical applications, with components such as micro lenses, fiber lenses, collimators, beam shaping optics, ball lenses, hemispherical lenses, LED lenses, and even domes and reflectors. Our specialized IsoDyn™ low-pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) process gives us a unique capability to provide excellent performance and high laser damage thresholds for laser systems. Our customers are excited by the high level of performance our new LDT coatings deliver." High damage thresholds are extremely critical for many of today's laser applications, including laser cutting, laser machining, micromachining, laser drilling, and laser welding.
