Industrial Materials Processing
PowerPhotonic offer a wide range of optics for collimation and beam shaping for laser material processing. Our homogenizers and diffusers combine high beam uniformity with high efficiency. For high-brightness SSL and fiber-laser systems, our beam shapers can produce application-specific intensity profiles without loss of power, maximizing overall process efficiency. PowerPhotonic’s beam shapers have minimal scatter and with optical efficiencies approaching 98-99%, it makes them particularly suitable for today’s high power laser systems.

PowerPhotonic’s optics can also be used for micro-material processing. The unique freeform direct-write process can be used to fabricate customized single mode beamshaping surfaces in to a fused silica substrate. These single mode beamshapers are carefully designed to transform a single mode beam into a variety of image shapes at the focus of a lens, providing the highest performance in shape and efficiency without adding additional speckle or diffraction artifacts. PowerPhotonic’s fabrication technology can generate field mappers to produce a wide selection of shapes and intensity distributions including square, round, annular and more. These field mappers are offered in a 1 optic or 2 optic solution, allowing for optimal tradeoffs between cost and performance.
