C-Shape Advanced Beam Shaping for Welding Applications

Holo/Or has ongoing cooperation with international research institutes on developing state of the art industrial laser technologies. During the Tailorweld project, we developed custom C-Shape beam shaper elements that improve the welding process. It was found that the C-Shape intensity distribution has advantages in the width/depth ratio, reducing oxidation and eliminating hot cracking by giving … Continue reading

SCI Measures Optical Domes Faster and More Accurately

Dome optics are the last component in a growing number of imaging and guidance applications. Domes protect the imaging optics from the surrounding environment without degrading optical performance. Therefore the dome’s transmitted wavefront quality is important to control since it directly influences the final image quality. Dome applications include: Underwater cameras Submersibles for robotic and manned … Continue reading

Holo/Or’s Polychromatic or Multichannel Broadband Diffuser

Many laser-based systems, especially in the life sciences, projection and projection mapping fields, require the use of more than a single wavelength, high power laser on the same optical path to achieve the desired functionality. To meet this need, Holo/Or has developed the high-power Broadband Diffuser (BD). The BD is a micro-refractive diffuser, specially designed … Continue reading
