Beam Attenuation: Key To Successful Beam Profiling
This white paper discusses why beam attenuation is critical because lasers designed for cutting sheet steel will have no trouble cutting through a beam profiler if the beam power isn't attenuated.  Continue Reading..

LASER SOLUTIONS

The WaveEye from Laser Components is a compact and yet highly precise wavelength measuring device for the spectral range from 450nm to 950nm.

The GAEA-2 phase modulator is based on reflective LCOS microdisplays with 4160 x 2462 pixel resolution and 3.74 μm pixel pitch. While offering small pixel sizes of the GAEA-2 SLM, the display enables high diffraction angles.

Laser Components' large-area laser protection safety products include active and passive laser safety curtains, laser safety barriers, covers for windows, and optical tables. These devices separate laser workstations from their surroundings and thus ensure the necessary occupational safety.

Gentec-EO has added another model of fast laser power detectors, the IS50A-1KW-RSI. Probably the most remarkable feature of this detector is its typical rise time of just 0.2 seconds, which means you get your high-accuracy measurement extremely fast compared to any other high-power detectors available on the market.

The LETO phase modulator models are based on reflective LCOS microdisplays with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and 6.4 μm pixel pitch. The LETO phase only spatial light modulator devices can be used like an external monitor using the standard HDMI interface of the graphics card. No additional software or special hardware is needed to operate the SLM.

G&H offers a variety of Housings, Connectors, And Patchcords, differentiated by housing type and pigtail. G&H can provide its components and modules terminated with a wide variety of connectors.

Applied in many fields, including avionic and space communications, biomedical instrumentation, fiber laser systems, industrial micromachining, interferometry, LIDAR, medical diagnostics, optical coherence tomography (OCT), sensing, and telecommunications, G&H's Fiber Lasers can be used to perform cutting, marking, welding, cleaning, texturing, drilling and more. 

G&H offers a range of distributed feedback lasers (DFB) that provide smooth, tunable wavelength control and the narrow spectral width required for precise fiber optics. Applications for these products include spectroscopy and fiber optic communications.
