ARO delivers high performance windows from the deep ultraviolet through the mid-wave infrared. We routinely work with fused silica, optical glasses and crystalline substrate materials such as CaF2 and MgF2. We utilize a variety of coating techniques to achieve the optimum thin film for each specific application, including coatings optimized for specific environmental conditions. We readily produce components in a wide range of sizes and geometric shapes.
We have particular expertise in producing the following laser specific, high transmission optics:
- Solid state laser windows specifically designed to deliver high peak power damage threshold and low scatter, without sacrificing mechanical durability.
- Excimer laser windows that provide excellent mechanical durability, high pulse count lifetime, and high transmission, even at deep UV wavelengths.
- Ultrafast laser windows that possess the optimum combination of broad spectral bandwidth, minimum group velocity dispersion (GVD), low scatter, and peak pulse power damage resistance.
