IPL equipment for medical and beauty salon use is becoming more popular, and is one example of how our polishing and plating skills are being used for new applications outside of industrial lasers. IPL treatment is used for skin rejuvenation, or hair removal.
The Xenon flash lamps commonly in these devices can generate a large amount of heat, so much so that the cavities and lamp housings need to be highly reflective, and have a mirror polished surfaces. This is where our polishing skills come in – the images here show the ultra smooth finished surfaces we can achieve. Mirrors with a broadband coating are needed as the flash lamps discharge a broad spectrum of light, typically 500nm to 1500nm. We can offer Aluminium, Silver or Gold reflective coatings.
We also make cavities and internal structures for scientific instruments such as Laser Induced Breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and fluorescence spectroscopy.
