AR Coated Windows
What is so special about AR coated components from OPTOMAN?
IBS AR coatings are extremely durable and environmentally stable due to the density of layers. Incredible resistance makes them
perfect for on-field applications.
Low loss configuration allows transmittance higher than 99.98% of AR/AR coated components and absorption lower than 0.3 ppm @ 1064 nm, for example.
Typical commercial AR coatings feature residual reflectance below 0.25% per surface. 0.1% is becoming quite a common value as well. In any case, imagine having a laser beam with 1 kW power passing through such a component. Transmittance loss is ~2 W – 5 W and this light goes somewhere back to the laser system…
With the low loss coating technology, OPTOMAN can reduce this number down to 0.2 W, because residual reflectance per coated surface can go below 0.01%.
Damage threshold > 40 J/cm2 @ 1064 nm, 10 ns, 103–on–1.
Reflectance per surface down to R<0.01%.
Sputtered anti-reflective coatings feature performance close to theorectical.
Absorption loss <1 ppm per coated surface @ 1064 nm.
Absorption is the main damage and fatigue driver. With absorption being at low level, AR coated windows feature enhanced duty cycle.
Transmitted wavefront distortion <λ/20 @ 633 nm.
AR coated windows do not influence laser beam wavefront.
Temperature and humidity independent performance.
Durable, non-porous and near bulk coatings.
