Laser Optical Components from Knight Optical

22 Sep 2022

Knight Optical has just released a brand new range of Laser Optics designed for use with Ytterbium (Yb) doped lasers, including diode-pumped solid-state lasers (DPSSL) and fiber lasers, as well as Nd:YAG and Ti:Sapphire lasers . Our current design wavelengths are 515nm, 1030nm, 1064nm.

Our current product catalogue comprises of:

These have all been coated using ion beam sputtering (IBS) technology allowing for optics that can meet the most demanding laser applications. This coating process creates dense layers of precise thin-film material which has the following benefits:

  • Durable coating which can withstand thermal effects even at high temperatures, with minimal thermal shift.
  • Non-porous with minimal surface roughness and therefore creating a virtually scatter free coating
  • Low loss from absorption
  • High laser damage thresholds (LIDT)

Our Laser Mirrors all exhibit a low group delay dispersion (GDD) which can be critical when used in ultrafast laser applications to minimise pulse broadening.  

Our stock products are available as 12.7mm, 25.4mm, and 50.8mm diameters and their key features include:

  • Reflection values > 99.9% within their design wavelength range.
  • Exhibit minimal group delay dispersion (GDD) to prevent pulse broadening, which can be critical in ultrafast laser applications.
  • Precision flatness and surface quality to further minimise scattering.
