Product Details Supplier Info More products

Laser Components has introduced Holo/OR’s doughnut-shaped diffractive optical vortex element (DOE). The outside profile is square while the inside is round, making it possible to achieve homogeneous material removal in laser material processing.

Vortex DOEs are said to be becoming increasingly popular in laser material processing as they put very few demands on the laser beam and on the distance to the working area.

Another advantage is said to be the intensity distribution of the laser beam: a laser beam features the highest beam intensity at its centre. In the vortex DOE, the power at the edge of the beam is used to achieve higher efficiency during processing.
