About This Webinar
Every photonics application aims toward quality, precision, and speed. The latter improves performance and reduces costs for market advantage. This improvement in speed requires the efficient use of laser power, making every photon count. Focuslight designs and delivers high-quality micro-optics, from components to industrial beam-shaping systems, in which the full potential of laser sources is utilized — whether they be diode lasers such as edge emitters, or VCSELs, DPSSLs, or other light sources.

An application may call for Anamorphic collimation optics to maximize coupling efficiency in fiber lasers, wide-angle diffusers with up to 160° FOV for driver monitoring systems (DMS) or machine vision, homogeneous illumination with contrasts close to 1% for lithography, or micro-optical assemblies for complex beam-shaping solutions. The resulting beam shapes can be designed, manufactured, and controlled by utilizing Focuslight’s 30 years of experience in designs that enable and improve applications. All of our micro-optics are produced on a wafer-level technology up to 300 mm in size with a wide variety of materials, including fused silica, high-index materials, and silicon. This allows existing technology to be quickly scaled and optimized, and new applications to be created with the highest power levels beyond market standards. Hauschild presents an overview of the possibilities for shaping a wide range of diode lasers and the resulting benefits, and he will provide an outlook on the future.
