Germanium Beam Shapers for Mid- to Far-IR Broadband Applications

Germanium (Ge) broadband beam shapers can shape single mode lasers at wavelengths in the mid-IR spectrum to achieve uniform illumination profiles in various shapes including: square, round, line or rectangular. These beam shapers are ideal for MIR/FIR spectroscopy and other projection applications using broad-band MIR sources. Therefore, Holo-Or’s single window beam shapers offer diffraction-limited shaping performance in the entire … Continue reading
