Laser Speckle Reducers dynamically diffuse laser beam.
Diffusers

Laser Speckle Reducers dynamically diffuse laser beam.

Available with 5 or 10 mm clear aperture and diffusion angles of 1, 10, and 20°, Laser Speckle Reducers remove local interferences and minimize speckle noise in laser systems. Units utilize 4 electro-optic polymers, which selectively move each reducer's central diffuser along X and Y axis to form circular pattern of motion. Powered by USB, reducers are suitable for beam homogenization, 3D...

Signal Couplers

Mode Converter Fiber Coupler uses Gaussian profile fiber input.

Mode Converter Fiber Coupler (MCFC) takes Gaussian profile single-mode fiber input from fiber laser and couples it into Luminator(TM) fiber. Focused spot sizes in range of 60-1,500 Â-µm can be selected by use of appropriate Luminator process tools. Product has detachable output fiber and suits welding applications where profile and small spot size of Gaussian beam are not optimal, such as...

Pockels Cell Driver suits continuous pulsed applications.

Model 823B Pockels Cell/Shutter Driver utilizes solid-state MOSFET technology to provide trigger noise immunity and smooth output waveform. Amplitude is continuously variable up to 3.2 kV by adjusting internal high voltage power supply with risetime of 30 nsec typical at full output. Output is push-pull, which effectively cancels EMI of output pulse. Applications of Model 823B include driving E-O...
