PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2015) - Laser Research Optics has introduced a line of sapphire cover glass windows for 4 kW and larger industrial cutting lasers that prevent contamination of the fiber lens from debris.

Laser Research Sapphire Fiber Laser Windows feature Moh 9 hardness which is second only to diamond, feature a 10-5 scratch-dig finish, and can withstand steel splatter, flash, and debris. Providing 1/4 wave transmitted wavefront, these highly polished sapphire windows are ideally suited for use as debris shields on 1064 nm industrial cutting lasers from 4 kW and above.

Reducing the typical number of lens changes, Laser Research Sapphire Fiber Laser Windows have A/R coatings on both sides and provide > 99.5% transmission @ 1.07 microns, with > 90% @ 650-670 nm. Available in 1" to 2" sizes, sapphire is harder and more durable than quartz. Sapphire C-Plane windows coated on one or two sides are also offered.
