Rugged pentaprisms for military laser rangefinding and target designation introduced by REO
BOULDER, Colo., 9 Aug. 2011. Research Electro-Optics Inc. (REO) in Boulder, Colo., is introducing pentaprisms with coatings optimized for demanding laser applications, such as military target designation and rangefinding in tough environmental conditions such as exposure to salt spray. The REO pentaprisms have dielectric anti reflection and reflective coatings manufactured using ion beam sputtering (IBS) technology to deliver densified films with strong laser damage characteristics of better than 12 J/cm² in 20-nanosecond pulses at 1064-nanometer wavelengths, as well as stability and mechanical durability, REO officials say.
