Control your beam

The recent advent of laser-like EUV to X-ray sources (high harmonic sources, plasma-based soft X-ray lasers and free-electron lasers), open the way to coherently shape the beam delivered to users or just directly used on experiment. Micrometer to sub-micrometer focal spots, Bessel beams, vortices are examples of achieved non-conventional EUV or X-ray beams.

Imagine Optic’s sensors  enable real-time monitoring as well as single acquisition of beam wavefront, ensuring to generate non-conventional EUV or X-ray beams and maintain their characteristics over time, for the benefit of in-house and user experiments.

The sensor can be run independently or in open/close loop with visible or X-ray adaptive optics.
