Optics, Laser & Photonics
Photonic applications are often referred to as simple when it comes to vacuum technology. In fact, that is correct when it comes to laser experiments, where cleanliness is the most important issue. For these kinds of applications Pfeiffer Vacuum has great experience with large chambers, oil free pumps, gauges and mass spectrometers. For almost all major laser experiments we have supplied components and solutions. These customized solutions generate pressure as low as ultra high vacuum (UHV) p < 10-5 Pa (p < 10-7 mbar).
With regards to the development of new optical coatings, the vacuum equipment will be exposed to high gas loads which can be of a corrosive nature. Pfeiffer Vacuum's profound knowledge and experience is the ideal partner for specific customer applications.
