Pagination or Media Count:
This is a report on a new materials technology, PTR glass, which will make possible rugged, lower cost, light weight optical components having wide application to both low-power and high-power laser systems. Applications we forsee include both spectral and angular beam steering and beam scanning, high resolution beam filtering, reflecting, transmitting, splitting, beam combining, and correcting of aberrations in telescopes and other optical systems. This PTR glass and some of these components are being produced at CREOL. I shall report our results to date in achieving these applications.
