Laser Position Stabilisation
The stability of the position of a laser is important to ensure accuracy and high-quality results.
An active beam stabilisation system with self-learning parameters reliably prevents beam pointing and also allows active control of beam parameters such as beam diameter, focus position or intensity, and polarization properties.
The accuracy of the laser and position stability is stated as an angular value. This value of stability measures how much the laser’s position moves from the intended target over time. This value is usually measured using milli- or microradians (mr or μr).
Laser beams, whether used in an experiment or in industrial applications, can move in space for many reasons:
If you are experiencing any of the above reasons when undertaking your experiment have a look at the products above that will help stabilise your laser beam.
