Optical Surfaces Acknowledged As Leading Manufacturer and Supplier of Debris Shields

Drawing upon its considerable experience of serving high power laser facilities around the world - Optical Surfaces Ltd is today acknowledged as a leading manufacturer and supplier of debris shields.

As laser beam energy and target size increase, there is a greater risk that ancillary debris and shrapnel can damage target-facing optics. The use of debris shields to protect typically expensive final reflective or refractive focusing high power optics is a well-established technique of cost effectively extending their lifetime.

Working with a range of glasses including BK-7 and fused silica, which offer good homogeneity and transmission from the UV to the Near-IR, Optical Surfaces Ltd. is able to supply customer specified debris shields of virtually any shape and thickness.

Manufacturing large, high quality debris shields combines the dual demands of producing a precision wavefront on a flexible window with a high diameter to thickness ratio. Benefiting from a stable manufacturing environment and proprietary production techniques Optical Surfaces Ltd.'s skilled and experienced craftsmen are able to economically produce debris shields with typical wavefront error of lambda/10 and surface finish of 40/20-10/5.

Optical Surfaces ISO 9001-2000 approved manufacturing facility provides the flexible resources to supply from single specialist requirements to OEM quantities. All high-power laser debris shields are provided with a complete quality test assurance report.
