Paper Abstract

The intracavity optics market continues to keep pace with the laser industry. And like the laser industry, as it matures, its growth is slowing in all segments. Intracavity, or internal optics, include mirrors, prisms, beam splitters and Brewster windows. The optics external to the cavity are called beam handling optics, and include laser system optics for medical, industrial, entertainment and scietific applications. They make up 125 million dollars of the total laser optics market. The internal optics are about a 37 million dollar market at this time.
