HOLO/OR is a high-tech company dedicated to the design and manufacturing of beam shaping elements.
The beam shaping element is a diffractive optical element (DOE) used to transform a near-gaussian incident laser beam into a uniform-intensity spot of either round, rectangular, square, line or other shape with sharp edges in a specific work plane.
A uniform spot enables equal treatment to a surface, excluding over/under-exposure of specific areas. In addition, the spot is characterized by a sharp transition region that creates a clear border between the treated and untreated area.
The beam shaping can be a:
- Focal Beam Shaping: Hybrid element (lens) or module which give a Top-Hat intensity distribution at a specific working distance (BFL of the lens or distance from exit location of the module to Top-Hat plane).
- Angular Beam Shaping: Optical element (window) which gives a Top-Hat intensity distribution at infinity or focal length of aberration free customer's lens.
- M-Shaper: Optical element (window) which gives a uniform exposure over scanned lines.
