Beam shaping offers numerous advantages to a wide range of industrial and scientific laser optics applications. Converting Gaussian input beams into flat top beams can result in cleaner cuts in materials processing, improved signal-to-noise ratio, and the ability to use less expensive lasers while maintaining performance.
Edmund Optics has partnered with AdlOptica to offer their beam shaping products in stock with same day shipping. The AdlOptica ϖShaper Flat Top Beam Shapers convert Gaussian beam profiles into flat top beam profiles with no internal focusing, making them ideal for high-power laser applications. They are also stable over great distances and are offered at different design wavelengths for common YAG, fiber, and CO2 laser sources.
While the AdlOptica ϖShaper Flat Top Beam Shapers transform input Gaussian beams into flat top beams, flat top beam profiles are not maintained after focusing through a lens assembly. In order to achieve a flat top beam profile at a focused spot, AdlOptica Focal-ϖShaper Q Flat Top Beam Shapers convert Gaussian beams into Airy disk profiles. After focusing, Airy disk beams will result in a flat top focused spot. Multiple designs are available at common YAG wavelengths with compatible input beam diameters ranging from 3-23 mm.
AdlOptica beam shapers are in-stock and available at Edmund Optics, and OEM support and volume beam shaper orders are available through AdlOptica.
