Fiber laser mode shots

Fiber laser mode shots

Currently we have Mitsubishi 4kW fiber lasers in house. Mode shots are taken at the head on 3/8" black acrylic glossy purchased from OEM. No idea what type of acrylic they are, and OEM won;t tell us (playing dumb to sell more I suppose). They are 3/8" x 4" x 4", and are pretty pricey. Anyone have alternative solutions or want to share products they've used?

RE: Fiber laser mode shots

There are several kinds of 'black' acrylic out there. I doubt they had something custom created. Why not just buy some of each and try them all until you get the same results as their too-expensive ones.
