Measuring Prisms: Multiple Wavefront Channels in One Setup

Prisms assemblies are difficult optical elements to measure. Back reflections from multiple surfaces and multiple channels make laser interferometry incapable of making these measurements. Spectrally Controlled Interferometry (SCI), available from Apre Instruments, offers an easy-to-use, accurate method to measure these components for the first time. A laser light source interferometer (for example a laser Fizeau) … Continue reading

Solving a Magnetic Raman Scattering Problem

In recent work appearing in the Physical Review, Dr. Mikhail Prosnikov was investigating Magnetic Raman scattering. To calculate some of these delicate measurements in the experiments, he required stable, weakly-divergent and narrow line lasers. The torus 532 laser from Laser Quantum was the perfect tool to use to acquire accurate data and further his research. The … 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
