Holo/Or Transforms Multi-Mode Laser Beams into Narrow Annular Shapes

Transforming the beam of a highly multi-mode laser into a narrow annular shape with almost single mode diffraction-limited ring width is a potentially useful technique for certain material processing applications, such as drilling and cutting. Holo/Or has published an experimental demonstration of our unique diffractive method of doing this transformation. To read a new article … Continue reading

SCI from Apre 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
