Custom Optics Product Family

Custom Optics

Coherent TIOS (formerly Tinsley) deliver high-performance, large aperture optical systems for space, airborne and ground astronomy, and defense applications.

Space-Qualified - Coherent has optics in service from Earth orbit to beyond Pluto. Our optics were chosen to fix Hubble, capture images with the James Webb Telescope and are deployed in strategic defense applications. Substrate Options - Coherent | Tinsley quantum coatings are ideal for imaging applications. Choose optical glasses, aluminum, beryllium, nickel and silicon carbide. Reduce Weight - Integrating mount structures with the optical surface reduces package weight and size.
High-Power Laser Optics

High-Power Laser Optics in all grades of fused silica, with AR, HR, and polarizing beamsplitter coatings at any wavelength from 193 nm to 1600 nm.

UV through NIR - Laser line coatings from 193 nm to 1600 nm. Minimize Absorption - Absorption is tested at every fabrication step, from incoming material through coating. Trust but Verify - Coherent performs in-house laser damage testing and fluorescence measurements.
Sapphire Windows

Sapphire Windows offer a broad transmission range, high hardness, mechanical strength, and chemical resistance making them ideal for demanding applications.

Size Matters - Diameters from 3 mm to 200 mm. Survive Harsh Environments - Coatings qualified for MIL-STD-810G (salt/fog). Avoid Damage - Damage threshold >20 J/cm² at 1064 nm.
Crystals and Assemblies

Non-linear crystals, gain crystals, and gain assemblies for defense, industrial, and medical applications.

Thoroughly Tested - Absorption is minimized by extensive testing, from boule growth through final coating. Coating Options - Dielectrics using ebeam (with IAD), IBS, and magnetron sputtering, plus metallization. Simplify Implementation - Get complete assemblies, including q-switches and harmonic crystal ovens.
