Large-area defect mapping for laser damage prediction

REO has published its 2017 presentation at the SPIE Laser Damage Conference. Subject addresses non-destructive work on large scale automatic defect measurement to optimize laser damage testing focused on both defects and defect free sites. This work yields a table that quantifies laser damage probability as a function of fluence and defect size. Authors: Alexander R. Martin, Sam Richman, Quentin Turchette, Trey Turner

For Compactness and Ruggedness, Linear Variable Filters Fit the Bill (Photonics Spectra, Sept. 2016)

REO discusses the latest innovations in design and scalable manufacturing of linear variable filters which has enabled filters that cover a broader wavelength ranges and can be applied as small as 1 mm x 3 mm sizes. We can even produce these very small filters in repeated arrays of LVF's on wafer sized substrates. Authors: Trey Turner, Eric Baltz and Roger Kirschner

Absorptionsmessung in Optischen Komponenten

REO has published an article on "Absorption in Optical Components" on the Germany website and publication PHOTONIK in the May 2015 issue by AT-Fachverlag GmbH. This article discusses the sources, metrology and processes that REO utilizes to minimize optical component and thin film absorption.

Adaptive characterization of laser damage from sparse defects (SPIE)

This paper explores the new REO adaptive strategy that increases efficiency and minimizes uncertainty by adding defect identification into laser-induced damage testing.

Active Alignment Techniques Improve Lens Centering

REO utilizes an optimized active optical alignment process which enables accurate, cost-effective production of precision lens assemblies. We discuss how active optical assembly techniques attain levels of centration not possible with mechanical alignment methods. Lens centering can also be less expensive using active optical alignment procedures.
