Edmund Optics Partners Cailabs to Make Reflective Laser Beam Shaping More Accessible

Posted Jun 25, 2020 by Edmund Optics

Edmund Optics (EO), a leading global supplier of optics, imaging, and photonics technology, has announced a partnership with Cailabs, a manufacturer of unique photonics products, to make reflective laser beam shaping more accessible than ever before. Under the partnership, the innovative Cailabs Canunda Reflective Axicons will now be exclusively available online from EO and are in stock currently for immediate world-wide shipping.

These reflective axicons generate high-quality Bessel beams for glass processing and other high-power laser applications. Their unique, fully-reflective design can handle high energy and eliminate chromatic dispersion, making them compatible with femtosecond ultrafast lasers such as Ti:sapphire and Yb-doped lasers. Conventional transmissive axicons, on the other hand, suffer from the broadening of ultrafast pulses due to their broad waveband.

Cailabs Canunda Reflective Axicons are available in various dielectric coatings for common laser wavelengths and include a manufacturer’s certificate of specification conformity.

EO’s global inventory of standard Cailabs Canunda Reflective Axicons significantly reduces the long lead times that are typical of high-power laser optics. The axicon’s coating and apex angle can also be customized for specific application if no standard options meets customer's exact needs. EO engineers, trained by Cailabs, will be available 24/5 to assist with selecting the appropriate Cailabs Canunda Reflective Axicons and other laser optics required for customer application.
