Specialists in Precision Optical Technology

As one of the top infrared optics manufacturers in the world, ULO Optics have been designing, manufacturing and supplying CO2 laser optics, and mid-IR optics for thermal imaging and sensing since 1982. We meet the needs of many types of customers from end users with custom requirements to large laser manufacturers or OEMs.

ULO Optics manufactures a wide range of laser components including CO2 lenses, CO2 mirrors, CO2 cavity optics, and f-Theta scanner optics. ULO uses the latest high performance coatings including the UltraLO AR/AR coating for high-power lasers.

ULO Optics also manufactures a range of CO2 beam delivery systems for industrial applications. We are leading the drive to make sophisticated beam delivery equipment much more affordable without compromising quality.

ULO Optics is an ISO 9001 registered company, please click the ISO logo on the right for a copy of our most recent certificate.

Quality Assured.

ULO Optics is an ISO certified company and quality is at the heart of everything we do.  With a host of industrial affiliations you can rely on ULO to deliver.

Beam Expanders for 1μm lasers

ULO Optics are excited to introduce our new range of beamexpanders. Designed for low power (500w) lasers such as Nd:YAG and Yb doped fibre lasers operating near the 1μm wavelength.
The beamexpanders are of Galillean design and use Multi-spectral Zinc Sulphide for the optics which has an absorption at 1μm of 0.0005cm−1 (Similar to ZnSe at 10.6μm).

Diversification into 1 micron optics

ULO Collaborate on the LaserSnake2 project, developing laser cutting optics for safe, remote cutting in air and in water, focused on nuclear decommissioning.

ULO Optics develops CO2 Brewster plate beamcombiner

In our new beamcombiner – C-BC-2, pairs of enhanced Brewster Windows are used to attenuate a linearly polarised CO2 laser beam. The Brewster plate acts like a polarising beamsplitter. The difference in reflectance also allows two perpendicular polarised beams to be combined into a single beam.
