A new line of fused silica fiber lenses that lets users replace them in the field instead of returning the complete laser head to their OEM has been introduced by Laser Research Optics of Providence, Rhode Island.
Laser Research Fused Silica Fiber Lenses are suitable for replacement by the laser operator rather than sending the entire laser head back to the OEM which saves up to 80% the cost of a typical lens replacement. Since laser heads often require replacement many times per month, the replacement of a lens in the field by the operator minimizes downtime considerably.
Offered in 1.5” and 2.0” dia. sizes with anti-reflective coatings on both sides to provide transmission of > 99.5% @ 1.06 microns with > 80% @ 650 to 670 nm, Laser Research Fused Silica Fiber Lenses are designed for use as debris shields on 1.06 micron Yag laser systems. These OEM compatible lenses have a 10-5 scratch-dig finish and 1/4 wave transmitted wavefront.
Laser Research Fused Silica Fiber Lenses are priced according to size and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request.
