Precision Type Reflective Spatial Filter
Spatial filtering without refocusing and pinhole assembly
Highly cost effective and small footprint
Easy alignment by angle tuning in standard kinematic mount
Compatible with high-power operations over 1 kW
Compatible with high-energy operations up to 5 J/cm2
Simultaneous spatial and spectral filtering (<5 cm-1 to laser line)
Supports operation at temperatures up to 400° C
Based on reflective Volume Bragg Gratings (VBG)

Imperfections in laser optics and variations in laser gain medium cause side fringes and spatially varying intensity. Our spatial filters are designed to "clean up" laser beams from these deficiencies. 14SPF Spatial Filters provide a simple, compact, and cost effective solution for laser beam spatial filtering. BSF is based on reflecting volume Bragg grating with a narrow acceptance angle that enables filtering of laser beams with a single element, thus replacing pinhole assemblies in case of narrow line laser sources. In addition to spatial filtering, 14SPF's provide ultra-narrow line spectral filtering and can be used for high-power/high-energy applications. 14SPF Spatial Filters have superior environmental stability and can handle high power optical radiation and high operations temperatures.
