Dielectric (Projection / Imaging) Mask – Precision aperture for high power laser

Dielectric masks are glass substrates that have a very thin (~1um) patterned reflective coating. The coated part reflects the incoming beam while the uncoated part transmits the beam. The output in the near field will be very close to the shape of the pattern. In the far field some diffraction patterns may appear. One should not see significant diffraction, if one projects with a lens the output of the mask to an image plane, as shown in the figure below.

One can narrow the transition region from a beam-shaper by using the Dielectric mask as in the figure below.
One can also create any pattern that will be imaged with a lens. One cannot manage the intensity profile within a spot.

Typical set-up with a Dielectric mask

Dielectric Mask
Fig 1. Typical Set Up

  • Small Transfer region (~10um)
  • High Damage Threshold
  • Low absorption
  • High Reflection (>99%) in Reflective sections
  • High Transmission (>95%) in Transparent section(s)
  • Low Transmission (<0.5%) in Masked part (@532nm)
  • Very thin Masking Layer (~1um)
  • Design for single wavelength

Typical Parameters

  • Outer Diameter (5-76mm)

  • Aperture Shape (round, square, multiaperture, other)

  • Aperture Size (10um- 60mm)

  • Wavelength (193-11000nm)

HOLO/OR can design and manufacture a custom dielectric mask to match the customer's needs.
