Water-cooled Beam Dumps for High-Power Lasers

Stop! To Here and No Farther

(PresseBox) (Olching, ) The trend toward higher and higher laser power has continued for years – and not just in material processing. The creation and transmission of laser power in the kW range and its controlled blocking presents a challenge that should not be underestimated.

Gentec-EO faces this challenge with its new BD series of water-cooled beam dumps. There are two versions available: for up to 4 kW and 12 kW of laser power; both versions have an active aperture of 100 mm in diameter.

These beam dumps feature a very compact footprint because they are mechanically almost identical to the HP100A series of high-power detectors. Even the absorber material used is identical – for a damage threshold of up to 16 kW/cm².

To eliminate any disturbing, diffuse back reflections, these BD series beam dumps can also be equipped with a shielding tube that is optimized for the appropriate application. The beam dumps are available at LASER COMPONENTS.
