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

Holo/Or’s Technology for Parallel Ablation or Scribing of Lines

Many applications in the solar panels and microelectronic industries require parallel ablation or scribing of lines on a flat substrate, such as scribing of electrodes or copper removal. These sorts of applications often employ Holo/Or’s Multi-Spot Beam Splitter DOE to create the spots used for the parallel writing, along with a scanner. Often, a large … Continue reading

EOT Provides Components for HAPLS

Electro-Optics Technology (EOT) supplies many components to the High-Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS) developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Today HAPLS can produce 0.5 petawatt (PW) of power at 3.3 Hz. This is 200,000 times faster than the first petawatt laser. This laser has a repetition rate of up to 10 Hz with a … Continue reading

DeepCleave Cuts Thick Glass Evenly along Focal Depth

Laser glass cutting with ultra-short IR pulses is fast becoming a key technique for high throughput glass processing. Cutting of thick glass (> 500 µm) using this technique possesses unique challenges, as the laser energy needs to be both focused to a tight spot and spread evenly throughout the depth of the glass. To help … Continue reading
