Beam Shapers

1.Lens Array Homogenisers

APEquamm provides lens array homogenizing beamshapers use a unique freeform direct-write process to fabricate customized lens array surfaces in fused silica.
These lens array homogenizers are carefully designed to produce flat-top spots at the focus of a lens; simultaneously maximizing performance and efficiency. The lens can be made concave to eliminate inter-system focal planes or even toroidal to produce rectangles while maximizing efficiency.
Lens array homogenizers can be used to create line, square, rectangular and hexagonal intensity distributions specific to an application, while remaining highly insensitive to beam alignment and input distribution. The lens arrays can either be used in a single array or dual “fly’s eye” configuration to balance the performance and cost of any application

2.Axicon Array Homogenizers

APEquamm provides axicon array homogenizing beamshapers use a unique freeform direct-write process to fabricate customized axicon array surfaces in fused silica.

These axicon array homogenizers are carefully designed to produce ring shaped spots at the focus of a lens; simultaneously maximizing performance and efficiency. The axicons are laid out in a hexagonal formation in order to maximize the uniformity of the intensity distribution around the ring.

3.Single Mode Laser Beamshapers

APEquamm provides single mode field mappers use a unique freeform direct-write process to fabricate customized single mode beamshaping surfaces in to a fused silica substrate.

These single mode beamshapers are carefully designed to transform a single mode beam into a variety of image shapes at the focus of a lens, providing the highest performance in shape and efficiency without adding additional speckle or diffraction artifacts.

4.PRIME Beamshaper

Psuedo Random Intensity Mapping Element (PRIME) beamshapers use a unique freeform direct-write process to fabricate a highly non-uniform surface in fused silica.

These quasi-random optics are designed to impart a well-defined and tightly controlled divergence angle which can range from fractions of a degree up to 10 degrees (FWHM) with potential transmission efficiencies in excess of 99%.

The PRIME beamshapers can be used to create highly arbitrary intensity distributions specific to an application, while remaining highly insensitive to beam alignment and input distribution. Examples include of intensity distributions include annuli, tridents, ramps, skewed Gaussians and more.
