Laser Research Optics’ line of CO2 laser optics are optimized for cutting and etching thin metals when fabricating filters, strainers, and related applications.

The CO2 Optics include lenses that feature coatings with < 0.2% total absorption values to keep them cooler and silicon turning mirrors which have an enhanced DMBR coating to provide up to 99.6% reflectivity. Optimized for 10.6 microns, they are designed to promote sharper cuts with fewer passes when cutting and etching thin metals.

Suited for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or as field replacements for end-users, Laser Research CO2 Lenses are available off-the-shelf in 0.5" to 1.5" dia. sizes with focal lengths from 1.0" to 25" in 0.5" increments and the Silicon Silver DMBR coated turning mirrors come in 0.75" to 3.0" dia. sizes from 2mm to 10mm thick. All meet ISO-10110 specifications for optical elements.
