REO High Damage Threshold Solid State Laser Mirrors.jpg

Reo produces reflectors for pulsed solid-state lasers that operate at 1064, 532, and 355 nm, as well as with multispectral laser systems. According to the company, the mirrors provide a combination of high damage threshold, ultralow scatter, good wave-front performance, high environmental stability, and rugged mechanical durability. They are suited for demanding applications such as industrial materials processing, intracavity laser use, and high-energy research lasers. The mirrors are made using ion beam sputtering technology to produce fully densified coatings that are resistant to environmental contaminants, fabrication techniques that minimize subsurface damage, and rigorous control of contamination at all steps. Custom-made mirrors have typical specifications of 99.99% reflectivity, λ/20 flatness (at 633 nm), 10-5 surface quality, and scatter loss of 1 ppm. The units are made in a range of sizes and shapes, with typical diameter of 0.25 to 10 in, and from most substrate materials, including fused silica, optical glasses, Zerodur, and Pyrex.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
