Coatings have highest damage threshold

Recent tests have shown that coatings from Laser Components achieve the highest damage thresholds available on the market for high-power titanium sapphire lasers. These damage thresholds were tested at the Laser Zentrum Hanover. The damage threshold measurement values were determined using a Spectra Physics laser (780 nm, 1 kHz repetition rate, 140 fs pulse length), according to ISO 11254-2.

These thresholds are available in coatings for Q-switched lasers at 1064, 532, 355, or 266 nm. Coatings for short-pulse lasers at 800 nm also exhibit excellent damage thresholds.

PRESS RELEASE

Tests Show Highest Damage Threshold Results

High-Power Titanium Sapphire Coatings

The more than twenty years of experience in the field of coatings are paying off. Tests have proven that LASER COMPONENTS achieves the highest damage thresholds available on the market for solid state laser coatings.

This includes, for example, coatings for Q-switched lasers at 1064 nm, 532 nm, 355 nm, or 266 nm. Coatings for short pulse lasers at 800 nm also exhibit excellent damage thresholds.

These damage thresholds were tested at the Laser Zentrum Hanover. The damage threshold measurement values were determined using a Spectra Physics laser (780 nm, 1 kHz repetition rate, 140 fs pulse length) according to ISO 11254-2.
