Beamsplitters - UV VIS NIR
REO fabricates a wide array of beamsplitters in plate, cube and custom multi-port configurations. We utilize our own adhesive-free Activated Covalent Bonding (ACB) technology to produce highly robust assemblies which demonstrate superior wavefront performance and high laser damage resistance. Polarization insensitive performance over a broad wavelength range makes REO’s non-polarizing beamsplitters particularly useful for telecom applications
Activated Covalent Bonding
Activated Covalent Bonding (ACB) technology, REO’s proprietary adhesive-free method of bonding optical components, can be used to produce a wide array of monolithic visible and IR optical assemblies, such as cube beamsplitters, x-cubes, and beam combiners and separators. ACB delivers bond strength matching that of the bulk material, but unlike traditional gluing, introduces essentially no wavefront distortion, minimizes scatter and absorption. This bonding approach substantially improves component laser damage resistance and operational lifetime. It can also be used for applications at wavelengths where adhesives are not transmission.Learn More
REO utilizes a range of adhesive technologies for bonding optical components and optomechanics. UV curing adhesives often provide the most straightforward solution with a nearly instantaneous tack-and-cure process that is desirable for active alignment. However, REO possesses deep expertise in many other adhesive types, including thermal curing, multiple-component chemical curing, and silicone based RTV’s, each of which provide advantages for specific applications. REO takes care to understand potential issues with outgassing, material compatibility, surface preparation, wavefront distortion, and other factors that can affect the long-term performance of adhesive-bonded assemblies.Learn More
Thin Film Coating
Over 20 years ago, REO became the first company to commercially provide Ion Beam Sputtered (IBS) thin film coatings. Today, we have expanded our technology to produce the highest quality thin films performing a range of functions across the full optical spectrum from the deep UV (190nm) through the long wave IR (14um). With a total of 35 coating chambers in operation, REO’s ability to produce the highest performance, lowest loss, most durable thin films across the spectrum is unmatched in the world.
