Laser Beam Shaping

Laser Beam Shaping is the process by which the uniformity or shape of a laser beam is changed from how it is  originallyemitted from a laser source. Typically, laser sources emit beams with a non-uniform intensity that are not ideal for most applications. Additionally, optical applications may require a beam shape that a laser source cannot naturally produce, such as a line or ring. Laser Beam Shaping products provide the means to transform a laser beam such that it has the desired characteristics required for your application.

Edmund Optics offers Laser Beam Shaping solutions to collimate laser beams, transform beam profiles, convert beam shapes, and much more. Flat Top Beam Shapers, used to convert Gaussian beams into flat top beams with a uniform intensity distribution, are available optimized for laser wavelengths associated with Nd:YAG, fiber, and CO2 Lasers. Cylinder Lenses, offered in broadband and laser line versions, are ideal for laser machining or medical applications, which require laser light shaping in only one axis. Slow Axis Collimators and Fast Axis Collimators are ideal for collimated laser bars and laser diodes, respectively, and are also available.
