Wavefront sensors and adaptive optics for optical metrology, lasers and microscopy
Optical metrology applications
Wavefront metrology is one of the keys for achieving a powerful performance of highly complex and accurate optical systems. Optical metrology is our daily concern to fulfill our customers’ quality needs in many applications. All of our in house produced wavefront sensors (for EUV, UV, visible and NIR) are delivered with a calibration certificate ensuring precision and traceability.
Adaptive optics for (high power) laser beam control
Adaptive optics applied on high power laser systems does not only protect the complex optical system from damage by hot spots, it also improves beam quality and helps to get a maximum of energy into the smallest focal spot possible. Dedicated deformable mirrors are available to guarantee highest stability and highest energy densities on the substrates and membranes.
Optical components inside the microscope (objective, various lenses and mirrors) and the biological sample itself induce aberrations. Imagine Optic developed a number of solutions where adaptive optics can be applied to correct those aberrations in order to improve the contrast and the resolution of the image in various applications of fluorescence microscopy.
