Shape it ‘til you make it – Top-Hat beam shaping with aspheres

Gaussian beam profiles are used in most laser applications. However, there are fields of application in which a homogeneous intensity distribution (so-called Top-Hat distribution) is required within the entire beam diameter, for example in order to generate optimum illumination. Especially in the fields of metrology, microscopy or material processing, homogeneous intensity distributions play a significant […] Mehr

Various beam shaper applications utilizing axicons

Axicons are conical lenses which create a ring-shaped beam used in research or rather different laser applications. They can be either convex or concave and made from almost any optical material. By combining two or more axicons and lenses multiple intensity profiles can be created. Specifics and Bessel beam creation Axicons are commonly used to […] Mehr
