Method For Laser Source Definition in ZEMAX™

In a recent article, Alexander Brodsky and Natan Kaplan of Holo/Or present “a new method for simulating and optimizing both single and multi-mode lasers in Zemax™ by applying a scattering model.” The abstract of the article follows: By default, optical systems are usually designed for single mode lasers. Nonetheless, many industrial lasers have M2 in … Continue reading

ZnSe Diffractive Axicons from Holo-Or

Holo/Or now offers an expanded selection of  ZnSe Diffractive Axicons, suitable for ring shaping and Bessel beam generation C02 laser wavelengths. Unlike regular axicons, Holo-Or’s diffractive axicons have no rounded tip area in the center and have absolute divergence angle accuracy, even at very low angles. This gives them the unparalleled shaping quality required for demanding, … Continue reading

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 … 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

Experimental Demonstration of Anamorphic M2 Laser Transformation in Polar Coordinates

The R&D physicist at Holo/Or just published a new article about M2 transformation, useful for industrial laser material processing applications. The article discusses a laser M2 transformation system in polar coordinates, where a multimode laser beam is transformed into a ring-shaped beam with close to single mode beam quality in radial coordinate (ring thickness), and … Continue reading

Holo/Or Participates in PROMETHEUS Project

Holo/Or is participating in a new HO2020 framework European laser surface processing project, called PROMETHEUS. This project pushes the boundaries of laser surface texturing technology to a new level! Within this project, Holo/Or will develop a novel diffractive-based M2 transformation module for high power, short pulse lasers to enable the precise periodic texturing of  functional … Continue reading
