PowerPhotonic’s Coherent Beam Combining to headline at SPIE Defence and Commercial Sensing.

PowerPhotonic will profile Coherent Beam Combining (CBC) at the SPIE Defence and Commercial Sensing (DCS) exhibition this month, booth 1236, National Harbor, Maryland, 21-25 April 2024. The company will not only display its recently launched, highly compact, CBC module, but also Mitchell Soufleris, Chief Optical Design Engineer in the US, will present his paper, ‘Large-scale monolithic lens arrays for coherent beam combination’, at the exhibition’s associated technical conference.

Mitchell explains, “PowerPhotonic’s CBC optics module enables new levels of performance in laser directed energy systems. The monolithic lens array at the core of the CBC has robust, power scalability with a high-quality, low-divergence output beam. The module is designed to replace traditional, multi-part solutions, saving on complex assembly and removing an inherent susceptibility to mechanical and thermal instability, which existing technology solutions face when power and size increase. PowerPhotonic’s freeform optics allow for the precise design and manufacture of the optical elements, including collimation arrays, beam shapers, profile adaptors and phase flatteners. It achieves a breakthrough level of SWaP (Size Weight and Power) that enables a wide range of new, defence applications.”

SPIE DCS is the world’s premier exhibition and conference for defence and sensing technologies for public, security, and government applications. Its technical programme covers materials and devices; imaging and analytics; advanced sensing and imaging; and next-generation sensor systems and applications.
