Qioptiq wavefront sensor performs LED measurement in real time

May 18, 2011
The SHSLab BR-110-GE-STD Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor measures extremely curved wavefronts in real time for laser analysis, optics testing, and LEDs.

The SHSLab BR-110-GE-STD Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor measures extremely curved wavefronts in real time for laser analysis, optics testing, and LEDs. A sensor head based on a camera with 12 bit grayscale and Gigabit Ethernet interface delivers a lateral resolution of 58 × 43 micro-lenses. Integrated SHSWorks software features high dynamic range for wavefront shapes containing large tilt, defocus, and higher aberrations.

PRESS RELEASE

Shack-Hartmann Wavefrontsensor SHSLab BR-110-GE-STD from Optocraft available at Qioptiq

Qioptiq and Optocraft are proud to announce their co-operation: The sensor system SHSLab BR-110-GE-STD from Optocraft for fast characterization of optical components and lasers in research and quality assurance is now available exclusively in the LINOS catalogue.

The wavefront sensor system SHSLab BR-110-GE-STD is the universal tool for the optical lab and laser technology. SHSLab reliably measures extremely curved wavefronts in real-time and with high stability. This enables new approaches in research, quality assurance and development of optical and laser based systems.

Its sensor head SHSCam BR-110-GE offers the usual excellent accuracy for laser analysis and optics testing, also for partially coherent light sources like LEDs. The sensor head delivers a lateral resolution of 58x43 micro lenses and is based on a camera with 12 bit gray scale and modern Gigabit-Ethernet interface.

The measurement principle is extremely fast and stable, since no reference wavefront is needed and all information about the wavefront is extracted from a single camera frame. For highest requirements it is possible to increase the already high basic accuracy by means of different referencing methods.

The add-on for your maximum benefit: software SHSWorks
To obtain maximum benefit from the high-quality sensor head, the system comprises the fully developed and reliable software SHSWorks STD for wavefront evaluation. SHSWorks features high dynamic range for wavefront shapes containing large tilt, defocus and higher aberrations. Besides wavefront measurement, comprehensive functions for calibration, automatic parameter selection, advanced evaluation and data export are provided.
