LASER BEAM SPLITTERS & COMBINERS FACILITATE POWER MEASUREMENTS
Laser Research Optics: LASER BEAM SPLITTERS & COMBINERS
September 26, 2012
A new line of polarizing beam splitters and beam combiners for CO2 lasers from 100W up that are in-stock for
immediate delivery to OEMs and end-users are being introduced by Laser Research Optics of Providence, Rhode Island.
Laser Research CO2 Laser Beam Splitters facilitate power measurements and other dual uses by reflecting a percentage
of the beam, typically 50% or PIB (polarization insensitive beam) which covers all polarizations. Beam combiners which
combine two different wavelengths, 10.6µm and 0.633µm (HeNe), permit alignment and focusing by providing a visual light beam.
Designed for engraving, marking, and scribing lasers, Laser Research CO2 Laser Beam Splitters and Laser Beam Combiners
are made from ZnSe with various coatings to achieve their polarization states. Beam splitters permit up to 50% transmission,
±3% of reflectance while the beam combiners allow 98.7% light transmission. Both are offered in 3/4” to 3” O.D. sizes.
Laser Research CO2 Laser Beam Splitters and Beam Combiners are priced according to type, size, and quantity.
They are available from stock.
