Aligning laser, or any other optical system , requires precision and discipline as its performance is subject to rapid degradation.The most common procedure is to insert a cross shaped mask into the beam path. Wavefront analysis is the best fit, and the Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor has become essential in every laboratory or R&D department. Laser optical systems simplicity of use and clear and exhaustive software allows users to easily perform a variety of tasks .
The HASO4 isone among our wide variety of wavefront sensors. This newly-released second edition features the new SpotTracker technology. Il provides absolute wavefront and tilt information, eliminating alignment requirements. Combined with the latest version of our acclaimed optical metrology software WAVEVIEW for HASO wavefront sensors and the HASO R-FLEX2 metrology system, Waveview4 features our new SpotTracker technology. It provides absolute wavefront and tilt information, eliminating alignment requirements.
Laser alignment Optical systems software advantages
– Adjust angular settings by taking advantage of absolute measurementof tilts and real-time evolution of aberrations;
– Tune the beam’s divergence by analyzing the absolute radius of curvature;
– Align complex optical elements (telescopes, off-axis mirrors, gratings) by projecting Zernike/Legendre polynomials in real time.
