FIGURE 1. A Gentec Beamage-4M CMOS camera (a) and associated beam-tracking software (b) allow the alignment of the centroid of one laser beam to that of a second beam, enabling near- and far-field relative alignment of the beams.

Laser beam diagnostics: Beam-analysis tools each have their own approach

Measuring the properties of a laser beam can be done in several ways; all are reliable, accurate, and fast.
FIGURE 1. The spot generated when imaging at the first surface of the sample, where essentially no aberrations exist, is close to diffraction-limited (a). The spot generated when focusing deeper into the sample is enlarged by the aberrations present in the sample (b). By precompensating the sample aberrations with a DM, the spot can be restored to nearly diffraction-limited (c).

MICROSCOPY IMAGING: Adaptive optics sharpens biological microscopy

At one time, adaptive optics (AO) was too complex for most non-optics specialists to use; now, plug-and-play AO for microscopy is here, freeing biologists to concentrate on their...
FIGURE 1. The impact of adaptive optics on laser spot quality is evident from these images comparing corrected and uncorrected laser output. The Strehl ratio (the ratio between the actual spot intensity and the theoretical maximum intensity), increases from less than 0.1 without correction to more than 0.9 when adaptive-optics correction is applied.

ADAPTIVE OPTICS: Optical fuse protects intracavity laser components

An adaptive-optics phase-correction mechanism combined with a specially designed filter can prevent catastrophic damage to critical optical components in a high-intensity laser...
