BERLIN, May 20, 2011 — Launched by AdlOptica GmbH, the πShaper 6_6 series of achromatic refractive field-mapping beam shapers includes the πShaper 6_6_NUV, the πShaper 6_6_VIS and the πShaper 6_6_NIR.

Optimized to operate, respectively, in the near-UV from 335 to 560 nm, in the visible from 420 to 680 nm and in the near-IR from 1100 to 1700 nm, they convert, with nearly 100% efficiency, a Gaussian laser beam into a flattop beam with low divergence and a uniform intensity profile over a large working distance.

The achromatic design provides the same conditions of beam shaping at any wavelength of the working spectral band and enables use of several lasers of different wavelengths simultaneously. With features such as a flat output phase front, compactness, no internal focusing, and similar input and output beam sizes, the systems represent solutions for life sciences, and for scientific and industrial applications. They provide illumination in confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, various fluorescence techniques, mass spectrometry, holography and micromachining.

flow cytometry
A method of measuring the characteristics of microscopic particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Particles may be stained with fluorescent dye and the fluorescence detected via laser illumination.
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
The optical recording of the object wave formed by the resulting interference pattern of two mutually coherent component light beams. In the holographic process, a coherent beam first is split into two component beams, one of which irradiates the object, the second of which irradiates a recording medium. The diffraction or scattering of the first wave by the object forms the object wave that proceeds to and interferes with the second coherent beam, or reference wave at the medium. The resulting...
mass spectrometry
An instrumental technique that utilizes the mass-to-charge ratio of charged particles as recorded from a mass spectrometer in order to determine the mass of a particle as well as the chemical makeup, or elemental ionic composition of a given sample or molecule.
