Tailor Laser Intensity Distribution for Specific Processes

Typically a raw laser beam used for industrial purposes is not the optimal shape for the necessary welding, brazing, soldering or other similar process. The white paper “Adjustable-Function Beam Shaping Methods” explains how a single diffractive optical element combined with manual or automated translation/rotation stages can convert a limited laser machine to a versatile solution … Continue reading

CNI Lasers for LiDAR Applications

Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is a method of measuring distance, by irradiating a target with a pulse laser and then measuring the reflected pulse with a sensor. Different laser return time and wavelength can be used to make a digital 3D representation of the target. LiDAR is sometimes called 3D laser scanning, which is a … Continue reading
