1 kHz Wavefront Sensor


1 kHz Wavefront Sensor

The HASO4 Fast combines a state-of-the-art CMOS camera with the core signature features of HASOs: absolute measurement, unequaled accuracy, high linearity and insensitivity to vibration. Check out the HASOs Table to see our Full HASO SERIES, compare specs and choose what fits your requirements !!


Providing outstanding performance, the HASO4 FAST wavefront sensor is recommended for optical metrology, that needs high speed and high wavefront measurement accuracy, adaptive optics and free-space communication. We offer a unique combination of expertise in high quality microlens production, software development and accurate wavefront sensor calibration at factory. This allows the HASO4 FAST to provide an unprecedented level of performance.

Ideal for measurements of fast changes in wavefronts, the HASO4 FAST Shack-Hartmann Wavefront Sensor, with a frame rate of 1 kHz, responds to all demanding applications.
This instrument is compatible with the Optical Engineer Companion metrology system.


+ Quantify the optical system’s aberrations
+ Align the system to ensure that it performs at its best
+ Drive a deformable mirror to do high frame rate adaptive optics
+ Quantify the transitional regime of active optical elements such as variable focal length lenses
+ Verify that the optics comply with specifications
+ Directly measure the optical system’s wavelength dependency
+ Quantifiy the pointing stability of high frame rate laser
+ Check whether the optical mount overly distorts the optics
