A full line of CO2 laser beam delivery optics for use with popular high and low power lasers that are in-stock for immediate delivery is available from Laser Research Optics.

Laser Research CO2 Beam Steering Optics include beam combiners, beam split- ters, ZnSe output couplers or front mirrors, silicon and molybdenum turning mirrors, silicon and copper phase retardation reflectors, and germanium end- and zero phase-reflectors. Available from stock, they are suitable for use with 25 to 200 Watt marking, engraving, and scribing lasers.

Optimized for 10.6┬Ám, Laser Research CO2 Beam Steering Optics are offered in 0.6" to 3.0" dia. sizes with reflectivities up to 99 percent. The output couplers provide reflectivity tolerances to +/-1 percent and the phase retarders and reflectors are offered in a variety of thicknesses with different coatings to achieve the desired phase shift.

  • turning


    Workpiece is held in a chuck, mounted on a face plate or secured between centers and rotated while a cutting tool, normally a single-point tool, is fed into it along its periphery or across its end or face. Takes the form of straight turning (cutting along the periphery of the workpiece); taper turning (creating a taper); step turning (turning different-size diameters on the same work); chamfering (beveling an edge or shoulder); facing (cutting on an end); turning threads (usually external but can be internal); roughing (high-volume metal removal); and finishing (final light cuts). Performed on lathes, turning centers, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and similar machines.
