Testing Capabilities

Overview

 

Blue Ridge Optics tests and measures all of our laser optics to the required specification at our in-house quality assurance and testing laboratory. Performance requirements including power output (select applications), environmental standards and durability are tested and certified for each manufacturing lot. Spectral and optical surface measurements are performed and evaluated for conformance by highly trained quality assurance engineers. All measurement equipment is maintained and calibrated in accordance with our ISO 9001 registered quality assurance system.

Surface Mapping

Using non-touch, 3D profile interferometry and coordinate detection software, high resolution surface mapping is available for advanced laser applications including directed energy and high power beam steering systems. Precision surface scans accurately locate, detect, and map defects at >1.5 microns. Maps can help identify potential damage sites and assist in defect characterization and mitigation.
