10 reasons to use Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors

Wavefront sensors have various perceived benefits but here are 10 objective reasons that have made Shack-Hartmann the golden standard in the field.  Real time measurement (up to several kHz) Achromatic Absolute measurement (typ. lambda/100, lambda/1000 achievable) Linearity > 99.9% Huge dynamic range > 1000 lambdas Wavefront and intensity maps measured independantly Simple and robust technology […]

XPulse project : extracting more information from X-Ray imaging

The first results of the XPulse project promise great advances in X-Ray technology and imaging, in particular regarding new generation X-ray sources and high-sensitivity phase contrast X-Ray imaging Even though X-ray imaging allows for powerful visualization, identification & diagnosis capabilities in various fields such as non-destructive testing or medical imaging, it is currently mainly based […]

Rflex LA : better, simpler, faster than any interferometer for filter characterization

Imagine Optic just released an interferometer-like instrument that allow for filter characterization in both reflection and transmission at any wavelength between 400 and 1100 nm – the R-Flex LA. Spectral filters are optical elements that are difficult to characterize in transmission using a standard interferometer. Because these elements behave differently depending on the wavelength, they […]

Make the Most of UHIL Systems with Adaptive Optics

Adaptive Optics (AO) dramatically improve the performance of optical systems by mastering wavefront distortions to deliver optimal focus and quality imaging for both scientific and industrial applications. The principle of an AO optimization for UHIL is that a deformable mirror combined with a wavefront sensor and the appropriate software addresses all the requirements for either […]
