Zygo collaborated with Diamond Light Source (DLS) in the UK to install a deformable mirror with deformation feedback provided by Zygo’s ZPS sensor system. The system was installed in the B16 Test Beamline at DLS as a proof of principle for this application.
Zygo has been making optics for the NIF’s laser program since the early 1970's, playing a critical role as the NIF’s laser system is the only facility in the world that operates above the laser damage threshold requirements for optics.
The National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is partnering with Gentec-EO for the integration of custom laser energy detectors for laser beam diagnostics, energy measurements, and calorimeters control solutions.
Selecting a laser module to fit an application should be a fluid process. From identifying key specifications to testing and potentially customizing the final laser, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
