Jerusalem, Israel, 7 November 2012 – Ophir Optronics Ltd., a global leader in precision infrared optics, photonics
instrumentation and 3D non-contact measurement equipment, announced today that its CO2 Optics Division has developed the world’s
most innovative optics for use in high-power, 1-micron laser systems.
Ophir’s OEM-approved fused-silica lenses deliver the best performance for 1-micron lasers with ultra-low absorption
(<50 ppm at 1.03-1.07 microns), a focal length tolerance of ±0.5% and a laser-damage threshold of >10J. Ophir has also
developed superior HR (High-Reflection) mirror coatings for high-power fiber lasers that provide over 99.7% reflectivity
at a range of 1.03-1.07 microns and over 80% reflection at 650-670nm.
“We deliver the most compelling cost-benefit ratio in the industry,” said Yehiel Plaut, Sales and Marketing Director for
the CO2 Optics Division of Ophir Optronics. “Extensive testing by world-leading OEMs has shown our 1-micron optics to be
best-of-breed, with outstanding durability and focus stability.”
Established in 1976, Ophir Optronics (Ophir) is a global leader in precision infrared optics, photonics instrumentation and
3D non-contact measurement equipment. The company develops, manufactures and markets top quality products that are based on
