BEAM STEERING

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2003
Special Optics Inc.Request Info
 
Special Optics Inc. is offering in-line beam steerers, which, unlike Risley prisms, move laser beams in a Cartesian coordinate system rather than in a polar one. The devices consist of an adjustable wedge formed by a planoconcave and a planoconvex lens that are joined by a thin layer of index-matching fluid. Displacing one lens with respect to the other changes the wedge angle, which steers the beam. Three models are available, with maximum deflections of ±30, 25 or 20 mrad and clear apertures of 6, 10 or 15 mm. Custom designs, materials and deflection ranges are offered.

GLOSSARY
planoconvex lens
A lens that has one plane surface and one convex surface.
Risley prisms
An assembly consisting of two thin prisms in series. Counterrotation of the prisms changes the magnitude of beam deviation, while rotating them together changes deviation azimuth. The two prisms are usually identical.
