Laser Research Optics has introduced a new line of OFHC copper mirrors offered with or without water cooling for use in high-power, multikilowatt CO2 laser systems. The mirrors are offered in polished, uncoated versions or with plasma gold coatings. They provide more than 99.6 percent reflectivity at 10.6-micron and 1/4-wave surface accuracy.

Available in 1- and 3-in.-OD sizes, the mirrors feature a clear aperture of 90 percent of the diameter. They perform beam bending in all beam paths and beam guidance systems, from simple measurement setup to high-performance lasers.
