Test station is suitable for characterization of optical coatings.

The LIDT station can be used at a laser pulse repetition rate from 1 Hz to 100 kHz. Measurements can be performed for laser radiation of 1030 – 1064 nm, 515-532 nm and 343 – 355 nm wavelengths. Automated positioning of the sample in X and Y directions is integrated (range of positioning ≥ 70 mm). An analog digital converter with selection and hold functions for the registration of the scattered and incident pulses is also installed. A computer with the necessary software is integrated.
