Pulse compression gratings

Fused silica transmission gratings

Unbeatable energy/power damage threshold combined with high-efficiency spectral performance

As femtosecond laser systems advance to ever-increasing energy levels, demands on the energy/power handling capabilities of pulse compression gratings increase. Ibsen manufactures 100% fused silica Pulse Compression Gratings that offer unbeatable energy/power handling capacity, combined with high-efficiency, low wavefront distortion performance.

Features and benefits

  • 100% Fused silica gratings provide the highest energy/power damage threshold, also in the UV

  • Environmentally and thermally stable

  • High diffraction efficiency

  • Available for 1030-1064 nm and 800 nm – or custom wavelengths

  • Low wavefront distortion

  • Low stray light


We produce pulse compression gratings to custom specifications, but also offer the below grating types as standard products. All our gratings are high energy/power capable.
