A new line of polarizing beam splitters and beam combiners for CO2 lasers from 100W up that are in-stock for immediate delivery to OEMs and end-users are being introduced by Laser Research Optics.

Laser Research CO2 Laser Beam Splitters facilitate power measurements and other dual uses by reflecting a percentage of the beam, typically 50 percent or PIB (polarization insensitive beam) which covers all polarizations. Beam combiners which combine two different wavelengths, 10.6µm and 0.633µm (HeNe), permit alignment and focusing by providing a visual light beam.

Designed for engraving, marking, and scribing lasers, Laser Research CO2 Laser Beam Splitters and Laser Beam Combiners are made from ZnSe with various coatings to achieve their polarization states. Beam splitters permit up to 50 percent transmission, +/-3 percent of reflectance while the beam combiners allow 98.7 percent light transmission.Both are offered in ¾" to 3" OD sizes.
