Laser Components is offering an enhanced range of ultraviolet (UV) optical filters produced by Omega Optical.

Using a new sputter coating tool, the filters now achieve more than 80 per cent transmission with OD5 up to 700nm, allowing for the deposition of UV oxide coating material ZrO2, transmitting in the UV down to 250nm.

The filters are designed to create more than 70 per cent transmission at 350nm with a 10nm wide band.

Key benefits

  • Thanks to the new technology, the filters provide higher transmissions, steeper edges and deeper blocking than previously seen.
  • As ZrO2 maintains a refractive index of 2.2 throughout the visible range, blocking without the use of metals can be achieved up to 700nm.
  • By including a new UV gain flattening filter, extended blocking up to the far-infrared range can be achieved while still providing a transmission as high as 40 per cent.

Laser Components

The Laser Components Group was formed in 1986 and is located at six locations in Germany, France, UK, Canada and USA, employing more than 120 people worldwide. In-house production accounts for approximately half its turnover, with partner suppliers accounting for all other business.
