Convert From Gaussian to Flat Top Beams

Flat top beam shapers are refractive field mapping optical systems that convert collimated Gaussian input beams into collimated flat top beams with a uniform intensity distribution and flat phase front. (Source: EO)

Edmund Optics (EO), premier provider of optical components, is now the sole online distributor of AdlOptica laser beam shapers that convert Gaussian beam profiles into flat top or Airy disk beam profiles with nearly hundred percent efficiency.

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 πShapers 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 to 23 millimeters.
