We have many years of experience producing high LDT optics. A wide variety of state-of-the-art metrology technologies have been used to ensure that all the specifications including laser damage threshold are met.


Laser Lenses

Laser Lenses are used to focus collimated light from laser beams in a variety of laser applications. Laser Lenses include a range of lens types including PCX Lenses, Aspheric Lenses, Cylinder Lenses, or Laser Generator Lenses. Laser Lenses are designed to focus light in several different ways depending on the lens type, such as focusing down to a point, a line, or a ring. Many different lens types are available in a range of wavelengths.


Paralight Optics offers a wide range of Laser Lenses suited for a variety of laser focusing needs. Laser Line Coated PCX Lenses are designed for many popular laser wavelengths. Laser Line Coated PCX Lenses possess exceptional transmission of specified wavelengths. Cylinder Lenses focus laser beams into a line image rather than a point. High Performance Cylinder Lenses are also available for applications requiring more precise transmission rates. Additional Laser Lenses, such as PCX Axicons, are also available.

Laser Mirrors

Laser Mirrors are designed specifically for use in laser applications. Laser Mirrors feature tight surface qualities, providing minimal scatter for beam steering applications. Dielectric Laser Mirror coatings optimized for common laser wavelengths provide higher reflection than achievable with metallic coatings. Laser line mirror coatings are designed with high damage thresholds at their design wavelength, helping prevent laser damage and ensuring a long lifetime.


Paralight Optics offers a range of Laser Mirrors for use from the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) to the far IR. Laser Mirrors designed for dye, diode, Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF, Yb:YAG, Ti:sapphire, fiber, and many more laser sources are available as flat mirrors, right angle mirrors, concave mirrors, and other specialty shapes. Our Laser mirrors include UV Fused Silica Laser Mirrors, High Power Nd: YAG Laser Mirrors, Borofloat ® 33 Laser Line Dielectric Mirrors, Zerodur Dielectric Laser Line Mirrors, Zerodur Broadband Metallic Laser Line Mirrors, Broadband Metallic Laser Line Concave Mirrors, Ultrafast Laser Line Mirrors, which are designed to provide high reflection with minimal Group Delay Dispersion (GDD) for femtosecond pulsed lasers including Er:Glass, Ti:Sapphire, and Yb:doped laser sources are also available.

Laser Beamsplitters

Laser Beamsplitters are used to separate a single laser beam into two separate beams in a number of laser applications. Laser Beamsplitters are designed to reflect a certain portion of a laser beam, generally a particular wavelength or polarization state, while allowing the rest of the light to be transmitted. Laser Beamsplitters are available in several different types including Plate Beamsplitters, Cube Beamsplitters, or Lateral Displacement Beamsplitters. Dichroic Beamsplitters are also available for Raman spectroscopy applications.


Paralight Optics offers a wide range of Laser Beamsplitters for many beam manipulation needs. Plate Beamsplitters are beamsplitters that are aligned at a particular angle to achieve maximum reflection of a given set of wavelengths. Polarizing Cube Beamsplitters use a fused pair of right angle prisms to separate randomly polarized laser beams. Lateral Displacement Beamsplitters consist of a fused rhomboid prism and a right angle prism to split a laser beam into two separate but parallel beams.

Laser Prisms

Laser Prisms are used to redirect laser beams in a number of beam steering or beam manipulation applications. Laser Prisms use a variety of substrates, coatings, or a combination of the two to achieve high reflectivity of a particular range of wavelengths. Laser Prisms are designed to internally reflect a laser beam off of multiple surfaces in order to redirect the beam path. Laser Prisms come in several types including anamorphic, right angle, or retroreflector varieties designed for different kinds of beam deviation.


Paralight Optics offers a wide range of Laser Prisms suited for many beam steering or beam manipulation needs. Anamorphic Prisms Pairs are designed for both beam direction as well as image manipulation. Right Angle Prisms are a common prism type that reflects a laser beam off the prism’s inner surface at a 90° angle. Retroreflectors reflect light off their many surfaces to direct a laser beam back at its source.

Laser Windows

Laser Windows are used to provide a high degree of transmission of specified wavelengths for use in laser applications or safety needs. Laser Windows may be designed for either laser transmission or laser safety purposes. In safety applications, Laser Windows are designed to provide safe, observable surface through which to view a laser or laser system. Laser Windows may also be used to isolate a laser beam, reflecting or absorbing all other wavelengths. Several varieties of Laser Windows are available for both laser transmission or laser blocking applications.


Paralight Optics offers a wide range of Laser Windows suited for many laser transmission or laser safety needs. Laser Line Windows provide exceptional transmission of desired wavelengths while effectively reflecting unwanted wavelengths. High power versions of Laser Line Windows are also available for higher energy laser applications where higher damage thresholds are needed. Acrylic Laser Windows are ideal for laser applications that use Nd:YAG, CO2, KTP or Argon-Ion laser sources. Acrylic Laser Windows may be easily cut to fit into any shape required. Laser Speckle Reducers are also available for reducing speckle noise in laser systems.

Laser Polarization Optics

Laser Polarization Optics are utilized for various polarization needs. Laser Polarizers are used to isolate specific polarizations of light or to convert unpolarized light to polarized light in a variety of laser applications. Laser Polarizers use a range of substrates, coatings, or a combination of the two to transmit a specific single polarization state. Laser Polarization optics are used to modulate and control polarization in many applications including simple intensity control, chemical analysis, and optical isolation.


Paralight Optics offers a wide range of Laser Polarization Optics including Glan-Laser Polarizers, Glan-Thompson Polarizers, and Glan-Taylor Polarizers, and Waveplate Retarders. Specialized polarizers are also available, including Wollaston Polarizers and Fresnel Rhomb Retarders. We additionally offer several varieties of Depolarizers to convert polarized light into random light.
