Expanded Range of Components for Growing Number of Infrared Application Spaces

10/28/2021, Barrington, NJ USA   —

Edmund Optics®, leading global manufacturer and supplier of optical components, has expanded its extensive inventory by adding several new product families that enable a growing range of infrared (IR) and near infrared (NIR) applications. This product expansion provides laser integrators more component options available in-stock for immediate shipping, enabling rapid prototyping and product development.

Eye-safe NIR lasers are increasingly being used in biomedical systems, LiDAR, and telecom. New TECHSPEC® 1550nm High Precision NIR Aspheric Lenses allow NIR system designers to correct for spherical aberrations and improve system resolutions. New NIR Detection YAGLASS-T Filters convert NIR light to eye-safe visible light and feature a high laser damage threshold of 51 J/cm2 @ 1064nm, 10ns pulses, providing an ideal alternative to laser detection cards for high-power applications.

New IR Pellicle Beamsplitters use thin nitrocellulose beamsplitting membranes mounted in aluminum frames to eliminate second surface reflections and beam displacement while minimizing changes in the optical path length in IR laser systems.

This wave of new products adds to Edmund Optics' already extensive range of Infrared Optics and are kept in-stock to facilitate rapid prototyping. Additionally, and custom components can be specially tailored to specific application needs to take laser systems from prototype to production.
