Optical Surfaces Ltd
: 01 December, 2009  (New Product)
Optical Surfaces is producing low wavefront error debris shields for protecting precision optical components in high power laser applications
Debris shields for the protection of high energy laser systems
Drawing upon its considerable experience of serving high power laser facilities around the world - Optical Surfaces is today acknowledged as a leading manufacturer and supplier of debris shields.

As laser beam energy and target size increase, there is a greater risk that ancillary debris and shrapnel can damage target-facing optics. The use of debris shields to protect typically expensive final reflective or refractive focusing high power optics is a well-established technique of cost effectively extending their lifetime.

Working with a range of glasses including BK-7 and fused silica, which offer good homogeneity and transmission from the UV to the Near-IR, Optical Surfaces is able to supply customer specified debris shields of virtually any shape and thickness.

Manufacturing large, high quality debris shields combines the dual demands of producing a precision wavefront on a flexible window with a high diameter to thickness ratio. Benefiting from a stable manufacturing environment and proprietary production techniques Optical Surfaces's skilled and experienced craftsmen are able to economically produce debris shields with typical wavefront error of lambda/10 and surface finish of 40/20-10/5.

Optical Surfaces ISO 9001-2000 approved manufacturing facility provides the flexible resources to supply from single specialist requirements to OEM quantities. All high-power laser debris shields are provided with a complete quality test assurance report.
