OPTOMAN

Working solely with Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) technology and consequently mastering it, we manufacture optics that feature excellent spectral performance, high Laser-Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT), at certain wavelengths even sub-ppm level absorption and 10000+ hours before first downtime, and most importantly – profound precision and reliability. Many aesthetic laser manufacturers trust our products – this segment is our second largest market segment and in 2023 medical laser manufacturers generated 20% of OPTOMAN‘s revenue. 

So why are reliable laser optics needed?

Besides the obvious that a laser wouldn't even work without optimized laser optics, poor quality laser optics can significantly increase laser system downtime. Downtime is critical for medical laser manufacturers, as it increases maintenance cost and hurts the reputation. By being as precise as possible, we make sure that laser optics from OPTOMAN would not be the reason for unexpected downtime, therefore OPTOMAN can lower your total cost of ownership. 

Various types of lasers are used for aesthetic treatments, each emitting wavelengths that correspond to strong absorption bands in water or biological materials such as hemoglobin or melanin: 

• Nd:YAG laser I and II harmonics 

• Dye laser 

• Diode laser 

• Ruby laser 

• Alexandrite laser 

• Er:YAG laser 

OPTOMAN stands out in offering laser optics perfectly suited for these applications. Our optics are designed to optimize the performance and ensure successful and reliable operation of the laser systems used in aesthetic treatments.

Design examples for Er:YAG lasers

The HR mirror measured reflectance graph for the Er:YAG laser represents a new R&D development of OPTOMAN. Our R&D team delved into coating material research and developed the capability of making relatively thin coatings for the Mid-IR region thus significantly reducing the main cost driver – time, which makes them cost-efficient.

Combiners

The mentioned lasers offer different benefits and are chosen based on the specific needs of the treatment. For some treatments, combinations of these lasers can be used to achieve the desired result. For example, the alexandrite laser, which emits 755 nm wavelength is very effective for hair removal, while Nd:YAG laser with its 1064nm helps to penetrate deeper into the skin for better results. Similar can be achieved with a ruby (694 nm) and Nd:YAG laser combinations. Another reason for using laser combinations is to accommodate to the type of skin - 1064 nm is more suitable for IV-VI skin types penetration and 694/755 nm is more suitable to penetrating I-III skin types. In these kinds of systems, combiners are used. 

To the left is a scheme for a typical combiner.

OPTOMAN is capable of manufacturing laser optics specifically designed for this type of systems:

 

HR > 99.7% @ 694 nm + HT > 99.0% @ 1064 nm + T > 98.0% 532 nm
