Laser light is used for its properties such as collimated beam, single wavelength and high power.

The features enable its use for measuring applications that require high accuracy and functionality e.g. motion detection sensors, self-leveling laser line systems, industrial optical sensing and other optical sensors.

Applications

  • Machine vision
  • Gesture recognition
  • Laser measuring systems
  • Product identification & security
  • Laser machining
  • Customized signals for large output angles

All applications require controlling the light, whether it is shaping or directing. Traditionally light is controlled with refracting glass optics, but options exist. Through surface microstructures and diffractive optics, same functionality can be accomplished with thin plastic film components. Film components are thinner and lighter in weight as well as lower in cost when compared to traditional glass components. Additionally by choice of material and its properties, components can flexible or rigid.
