PowerPhotonic Announces New Beam Shaper Optics for Single Mode Lasers

20 January, 2016

World leader in precision laser micro-optics to present papers at Photonics West 2016, including new beam shapers used to create close to diffraction limited very small spots

Powerphotonic, experts in the field of high precision micro-optics, is pleased to announce that it will be presenting two papers at Photonics West 2016, San Francisco.

The first paper explores the use of field mapping beam shapers for use with single mode lasers.  Powerphotonic has devised a unique patent pending design approach to create a near diffraction limited shaped spot for single mode lasers using high efficiency refractive free form optics.  This solution enables speckle free beam-shaping of a Gaussian laser beam by remapping the input beam to create the desired output.

The second paper will discuss how customised low-angle refractive diffusers can be used for high power laser applications.  Where high powered lasers require a low diffusion angle, our second paper specifically looks at the design and fabrication of smooth and continuous customized refractive diffusers designed to maximisation of diffuser efficiency and performance, even at diffusion angles of only a few milliradians or less. These new design techniques will be used to add to PowerPhotonic’s ever expanding range of beam shaper products.
