Both Laser Beam Dumps have a 50mm aperture. A broadband absorber makes them suitable for applications across a wide spectral range, from UV to far IR. The absorber has a high damage threshold, handling 7 kW/cm2 at 500W and 3 kW/cm2 at 5kW. The Beam Dumps are compact units with standard mounting configurations.
Laser beam dumps are an important component of many laser applications, especially those that do not want a dedicated power meter in the beam at all times, said Ephraim Greenfield, VP Engineering, Laser Measurement Group, Ophir-Spiricon. Until now, all high power beam dumps were expensive, complicated devices with a shutter as well as a beam dump. The BD series of beam dumps are simple, compact, devices with a high damage threshold. This provides users with exactly the functionality they need at a significantly lower cost.
