Ceramic-based IR converter

The latest generation of IR converters for Nd:YAG lasers

The IRC 1064 IR-type is an active IR converter to render laser radiation visible. We developed this IR converter especially for visualising laser radiation at a wavelength of 1064 nm. The IR converter is based on doped Al2O3 ceramic.

Easy handling, a high destruction threshold, the long service life, the very large homogeneous beam formation and the fact that it can be used on both sides characterise the IR converter, IRC 1064.


  • Laser radiation rendered visible (light conversion)
  • Aid for adjustment of optical beam paths
  • Mode profiling
