Fish Out of Water

Once I orderedd something from Edmund Scientific company.  I cannot imagine what.  Since then I have been getting advertisements for things that I do not know what they are even.  Look at these bargains... do you even know what they do?

 

TECHSPEC® BeamX™ Laser Beam Expanders
"BeamX™ is one of my favorite products because we test the wavefront at the design wavelengths: 532nm, 785nm and even 1064nm, not just at 633nm. Plus, they're damaged threshold tested for higher power applications."
— Project Manager

TECHSPEC® UV Fused Silica Corner Cubes
"I recommend UV Fused Silica Corner Cubes any time I speak with a customer who needs a retroreflector with high efficiency over a long bandwidth. The low coefficient of thermal expansion of the fused silica substrate is a great choice for an application where temperature is a variable."
— Applications Engineer

TECHSPEC® Aspherized Achromats
"I love the value of our aspherized achromats. $75 for a color-corrected asphere!?! You can't beat that!"
— Business Unit Manager

ReflX™ Objectives
"I like to recommend ReflX™ Objectives because this product is great for applications that demand zero chromatic aberration across a broad spectral range."

John says that these have to do with lasers, he thinks.  NMs are nanometers.  Nanometers are used to measure the frequency of light.  Hope that helps, LOL.

Okay Chuck, let me explain a little more fully.  And John is helping me with this.  Those were "laser expanders".  They go somewhere along the path of the laser beam.  They are used to refocus the beam so it doesn't get too wide and weak.  Lasers can be used for several things.  They can be used to make holograms, in communications, in surgery, in light shows.  There has been some use in experimentation with them as weapons.

Hope that helps.  Would you now like to buy a laser expander, LOL?
