Product Release – Copenhagen, May 10th, 2010

Ibsen Photonics offers pulse compression gratings in 100% fused silica for high-power femtosecond laser pulse compression at 1000-1100 nm wavelengths with higher than 94% diffraction efficiency

Ibsen Photonics, a leading supplier of holographic Phase masks, transmission diffraction gratings and spectrometer modules based on diffraction gratings, now offers pulse compressions with exceptionally high diffraction efficiency.

Kristian Buchwald, VP – Grating Business Unit comments: “Our fused silica pulse compression gratings have been well received by customers working with high-power femtosecond applications, where laser manufacturers have been hitting the energy ceiling of grating types available prior to our gratings being introduced just a few years ago.” He adds: “Continuing process improvements have now allowed us to offer as an option gratings with higher than 94% diffraction efficiency.”

Ibsen will be presenting its pulse compression gratings together with its other products – Phase masks, telecom gratings, spectrometer gratings, Interrogation Monitor modules for FBG sensor systems and OEM Spectrometer capabilities at CLEO.
