HOT PRODUCTS

Beamsplitters for High Power Laser Applications Beamsplitters for High Power Laser Applications

PG&O’s latest beamsplitters features a 200:1 extinction ratio, thus maximizing the split between S&P polarization. This can be a critical factor in many different high-power level tasks, particularly for optics applications up to 10J/cm2 pulsed and continuous wave.

Littrow Prisms Littrow Prisms

Littrow dispersion prisms are used to limit lasing to a specific wavelength in many optics applications. This is ideal for laser cavities, spectrographs, and other optical systems in which it is critical that a specified wavelength not be exceeded when a sample (tissue or otherwise) is subjected to a laser’s light.

  • Datasheet: Beam Splitters

    Our plate beamsplitters are designed to split a beam of light into separate paths. The percentages of transmission, reflection and wavelength region can vary according to your application. The first surface is an all dielectric coating. The second surface is generally antireflection coated to minimize secondary reflections and ghosting. We can optimize your coating to meet your specification (R/T ratio, angle of incidence and wave length).

  • Datasheet: Antireflection Coatings

    PG&O offers a full range of anti-reflection coatings from 350nm to 1700nm. We have standard broadbands, V-Coatings, and double V-Coatings matched to a variety of substrates, as well as single layer MgF2. All can be shifted to your wavelength and angle requirements.
