Lasers & optics
A CO2 laser exit window.
Element Six serves the lasers and optics industry through its range of synthetic diamond-related materials and products.
Element Six single crystal synthetic diamond and polycrystalline CVD (chemical vapour deposition) diamond solutions are found at the core of high power CO2 lasers, disk lasers and solid state lasers, and enable a stable and enduring high optical quality of the laser beam.
Our spectroscopy and laser solutions
Element Six single crystal synthetic diamond and polycrystalline CVD diamond have become an established solution in various applications of molecular spectroscopy. This is especially the case in FTIR (Fourier transform infrared) spectroscopy, where mounted synthetic diamond ATR (attenuated total reflectance) prisms are a robust solution enabling the transfer of this versatile technology from the laboratory to the production line. Element Six synthetic diamond is used in Raman lasers, where the extreme properties of synthetic diamond enable a power scaling improvement of over two orders of magnitude. The number of new laser and optics applications that will benefit from the extreme combination of properties of synthetic diamond is growing continuously.
Our extreme technical solutions
Element Six synthetic diamond can be found in applications requiring the highest technical standards. Whether it is for high power lasers, spacecraft or fibre optics, the use of synthetic diamond will increase performance and extend the lifetime of the application. Synthetic diamond exhibits a number of extreme properties that make it an outstanding optical material. Its broadband optical transparency, from ultraviolet to far infrared and extreme thermal conductivity, combined with hardness, wear resistance and chemical inertness, make synthetic diamond a durable solution for demanding applications.
