The a|AiryShape is a compact Top-Hat beam shaper
and optimized for the wavelength range from 300 nm to 1600 nm
. Due to its high-precision mount, it is always perfectly aligned and features a diffraction-limited wavefront. In combination with a focusing lens
, the a|AiryShape enables the conversion of collimated Gaussian beams into focused beam profiles. Thanks to its working principle, not only one Top-Hat beam profile can be generated in the focal plane of the lens, but also Donut and Beam Waist profiles in addition to Top-Hat profiles of various sizes
. The size of the profiles can be scaled by means of the focal length. Their generation depends on the quality of the input beam. For best results, a perfectly collimated beam with minimized wavefront aberrations is required. For collimating we therefore recommend the a|AspheriColl
. A special feature of the a|AiryShape is its extremely compact design
. With a length of only 17.3 mm, it can be easily integrated into existing (even non-system) set-ups. Thanks to its clever optical design, it can also reduce the working distance. Buy the beam shaper a|AiryShape, available in the design wavelengths 355 nm, 532 nm, 632 nm, 780 nm and 1064 nm, for your application e.g. in material processing.
