DOE Expander module video (December 21, 2017)
Take a look at our latest video on the DOE Expander--an optical module meant to increase DOE divergence angle when it would otherise be beyond manufacturing capabilities.
Watch it here. Visit our DOE Expander page for more information.
Dual Wavelength F-Theta lens (December 20, 2017)
HOLO/OR is offering a Diffractive F-Theta lens with Dual Wavelength lens for medical treatments and scanner systems.
This option eliminates the need to place the Dual Wavelength lens inside the scanner. Read more about it here.

Randomized Array of Diffractive Axicons (RADA) (Jan 12, 2017)
This design is insensitive to centration alignment and beam symmetry and will be a perfect fit for multi-mode laser sources.
The design is available in a binary version (DA-040) with efficiency ~ 80 % and a multilevel high efficiency version with efficiency ~ 95 %.
