Aspheric optics for shaping beams

BeamBox

Discover easy Gauss to Top-Hat laser beam transformation

With a|TopShape and a|AiryShape asphericon expands the BeamTuning product range with two newly developed beam shapers. Based on aspheric optics, the two modular components enable uncomplicated transformation of Gaussian laser beams into different Top-Hat profiles. Thanks to the most precise production technology, the modules convince with quality at the highest level and can be used in many ways.

Shaping of beams has an important role to play, e.g. in applications in laser material processing or microscopy. Gaussian profiles are usually used in laser applications. They have weaknesses regarding the distribution of their intensity. With homogeneous intensity distributions, so-called Top-Hats, significantly better results can be achieved than with Gaussian profiles. They enable, for example, a high edge steepness of the laser beam and thus the quality of the cutting edge or an even illumination. Benefit from easy handling for your application! Convert Gaussian laser profiles into collimated or focused Top-Hat intensity distributions with asphericon’s beam shape products.

Many advantages thanks to an aspheric optic

Input and output beam of both beam shapers are freely scalable. Their wide spectral range (300 nm to 1600 nm) allows for applications in metrology, microscopy or material processing. a|TopShape and a|AiryShape can be used with a collimated laser but also with a fiber-coupled source.
With their compact dimensions and the use of precision aspheric lenses, the beam shapers offer outstanding optical quality. Thanks to their modular design and asphericon assembly concept, a|TopShape and a|AiryShape can be connected quickly and without further adjustment into optical systems. They are easy to use and can be simply integrated into existing set-ups or combined with additional beam expansion components. The perfect alignment of all optical elements in high-precision mounts enables the beam shapers to be perfectly positioned within the beam path.

Precise optical modules for different applications – asphericon BeamTuning

Discover the unlimited combination possibilities of a|TopShape and a|AiryShape with other BeamTuning elements – including a perfect fiber coupling solution. Necessary flexibility is provided by a|Adapters – a combination with other systems (e.g. Owis, Edmund Optics, Qioptiq) is easily possible. Use a|BeamExpander and MountedOptics to expand the beam or shorten the working distance for your laser application. Both beam shapers are available in various combinations as practical and price-optimized a|BeamBox.
