HEXA-BEAM Laser

Select your laser colour at the turn of a knob.

Direct experiments at different wavelengths - with only one simple laser source – and without the need for re-alignment.

If you want to demonstrate various scientific experiments requiring a simple light source but at different wavelengths, how do you do that without spending time resetting the experiment?

The HEXA-BEAM Laser can do just that.

Up to six laser modules can be included in the new HEXA-BEAM Laser, allowing the selection of different wavelengths by simply turning the easily operational knob.  The different wavelengths are emitted along the same optical path and are vertically polarised.  Both teachers and students can conduct experiments quickly and efficiently, saving time and enjoying the large number of experiments they can study.

The HEXA-BEAM Laser contains as standard the 405 nm, 520 nm and 650 nm modules.  Up to a total of six wavelengths can be included upon request.

Health & Safety

  • Emission powers of standard wavelengths are kept under 1 mW, meeting class 2 specifications to minimize potential health hazards, making the HEXA-BEAM Laser suitable for undergraduate labs, schools and colleges.

 

Flexibility

  • The HEXA-BEAM Laser is compatible with the standard 30 mm cage systems allowing experiments to be built directly in front of the device
  • The HEXA-BEAM Laser can be placed on optical tables, mounted on posts, clamped onto the table or used free standing

 

Applications

Demonstrating laws of physics such as:

  • Poisson spot (Fresnel bright spot ) experiment (showing that light behaves as a wave)
  • Malus’s law
  • The law of refraction, measuring refractive indices at different wavelengths of different materials, producing diffraction patterns
  • Determining the emission wavelength using a simple grating
  • Demonstrating Mie and Rayleigh scatterings
  • Demonstrating chirality of molecules
