Laser Grade Optics
Laser Grade Optics (LGO) is an internal business unit at Optimax that was designed to help meet the increasing demands of our customers for the most extreme high precision of components for laser applications. These specialized cells internally are trained and have the technology at hand to manufacture optical components that are:
This was an internal transformation from not just a manufacturer but engineered manufacturing that can solve challenging problems for our customers and create solutions to these problems while focusing on specific applications.
For the most extreme applications – everything counts. There's no solution without considering the complete picture.
Laser Grade Coatings
High Laser Damage, Low Absorption and Long Lifetime
Processes designed specifically for pulsed and CW high-fluence laser applications.
Low Absorption | High Laser Damage | Coating Uniformity | OTR Coating

The use of high-power continuous wave (CW) lasers in the emerging directed energy (DE) market has put greater emphasis on the quality of optical coatings.
One third of the exchanged final turning mirrors on the National Ignition Facility have been laser damaged by 3ω (351nm) target backscattered light. The mirrors are spectrally complex hafnia and …
Learn how increasing oxygen partial pressure during deposition improves film stoichiometry, absorption, and laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) at 351 nm.
Completing our suite of deposition equipment, we are developing a new Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) System with different substrate configurations.
Every optical application requires a “clean” optical surface. However, what defines “clean” is subjective and is based on the needs of the application.
There are many decisions to make when designing, specifying, manufacturing, and testing optical components for high-energy laser systems — each is a potential failure mechanism that must be understood and …
Optimax has developed a novel optical coating (OTR‐AR). OTR coatings have been demonstrated to provide excellent resistance to latent scratching, staining and dimming of chemically sensitive optical glass surfaces in …
Design, specification, and procurement of optical coatings all benefit when the designer has a good understanding of measurement techniques and uncertainties.
