High LIDT large aperture dispersive optics

Ultrafast Innovations GmbH is newly equipped with the HELIOS 800 Gen II magnetron sputtering coating plant of Bühler Leybold Optics. The newest addition has allowed to expand our portfolio and enables production of large aperture optics. We are currently able to produce up to 200 mm diameter optical components including beam splitters, filters, ultra-highly reflective and dispersive mirrors. In addition to the availability of the large aperture optics, we are providing optical coatings with high damage thresholds. Our current damage threshold record for a high reflecting mirror at 1064 nm, 100 Hz stands at 90 J/cm2 as tested by our partner - Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH).
