New TECHSPEC® 2-8X Continuously Variable Beam Expander Suitable for 355nm

TECHSPEC® Variable Beam Expanders now available for 355nm with 2X – 8X magnification range

6/28/2016, Barrington, NJ USA   —

Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces a line expansion for their TECHSPEC® Variable Beam Expanders.  These versatile beam expanders offer continuous magnification for high power laser applications where magnification changes may be required, including prototyping or research and development.

New 355nm with 2X – 8X magnification range

TECHSPEC Variable Beam Expanders are now available in 355nm wavelength with 2X – 8X magnification range and are particularly suited for UV laser machining. This new model is in-stock and available for immediate delivery for fast turnaround and excellent value.

Diffraction-Limited Performance

These UV Beam Expanders feature diffraction limited performance with a guaranteed 1/4λ transmitted wavefront. High laser damage threshold anti-reflective (AR) coatings ensure maximum transmittance, while minimizing ghost reflections

Continuous Magnifications of 1-3X and 2-8X are available

TECHSPEC Variable Beam Expanders are available in two different magnification ranges – from 1-3X or 2-8X – for common Nd:YAG wavelengths 355nm, 532nm, 1064nm, or broadband visible wavelengths. Custom fixed magnification requirements and wavelengths can also be accommodated.
