HEXA-BEAM Laser

The Hexa-Beam Laser is designed to switch between up to six different wavelengths without the need to realign the equipment.  This is done by rotating one single knob.  This allows for an experiment to be conducted at different wavelengths whilst ensuring that other critical variables remain controlled.  The different wavelengths are emitted along the same optical path and are vertically polarised.

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
