Laser Research Optics Introduces Sapphire Debris Shields that Reduce Deterioration of Beam Quality

Share Article

A line of new laser debris shields for lasers from 4 kW up that can withstand steel splatter, flash, and debris better than fused silica has been introduced by Laser Research Optics.

Available in 0.5” and 2.0” sizes, saphhire has lower bulk absorption with about 30 times higher thermal conductivity than fused silica protection glasses.

Available in 0.5” and 2.0” sizes, saphhire has lower bulk absorption with about 30 times higher thermal conductivity than fused silica protection glasses.

Extending service life and the required lens changes, Sapphire Debris Shields have A/R coatings on both sides for transmission of greater than 99.5% @ 1.06 microns with greater than 80% @ 650-670 nm.

Laser Research Optics has introduced a line of laser debris shields for lasers from 4 kW up that can withstand steel splatter, flash, and debris better than fused silica.

Laser Research Sapphire Debris Shields feature Mohs 9 hardness, which is second only to diamond, and can withstand steel splatter, flash, and debris to reduce focus shift and the deterioration of beam quality. Available in 0.5” and 2.0” sizes, they have lower bulk absorption with about 30 times higher thermal conductivity than fused silica protection glasses.

Extending service life and the required number of lens changes, Laser Research Sapphire Debris Shields have A/R coatings on both sides to provide transmission of greater than 99.5% @ 1.06 microns with greater than 80% @ 650-670 nm. These laser debris shields have a 10-5 scratch-dig finish and 1/4 wave transmitted wavefront.

Laser Research Sapphire Debris Shields are priced according to size and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request.
