8/80) designed for harsh down-hole and sub-sea environments, spun HiBi SHB1250, delay coil - HB1250, HB1250G, HB1250T(245) and quarter wave plate fibers have all been added to its specialty fiber portfolio.
This includes the sensor element fibers Spun HiBi SHB1250 and Spun LoBi SLB1250 fibers, as well as supporting component fibers such as HB-Z ZING[TM] polarizing fibers, HB, HB-T and HB-G delay coil fibers and quarter wave plate fibers.
KYOTO, Japan -- Kyocera Corporation (President: Tetsuo Kuba)(NYSE:KYO)(TOKYO:6971) today announced that it has successfully developed the industry's first wavelength-selective crystal 1/2 wave plate which enables multi-use and simultaneous use of three wavelengths.
The 1/2 wave plate is an essential component for laser devices which ensures the necessary processing accuracy (by adjusting irradiation power) and processing flexibility (by adjusting the irradiation angle) through rotation of the laser polarization plane to realize optimal microfabrication suiting the pieces to be processed.
The new product was successfully developed with advanced wave plate simulation technologies, optical thin film coating technologies, and high-quality synthetic crystal development and thin film processing technologies cultivated over many years, all proprietary to Kyocera Kinseki Corporation -- a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyocera Corporation engaged in the development and manufacturing of crystal devices.
com)-- Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light[R], introduces Large Diameter Achromatic Zero-Order Quartz-MgF2 Wave Plates.
The new, larger diameter wave plates feature 23 mm clear apertures and operate in the spectral wavelengths from 610 to 850 nm or from 700 to 1000 nm.
Newport's air-spaced quartz-magnesium fluoride wave plates offer a higher damage resistance than achromatic polymer film wave plates, making them ideal for use in a variety of ultrafast applications.
