Optocrafts Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors enable measurements with outstanding accuracy and dynamics with high intrinsic stability. The measurement principle of the sensors is based on capturing the wavefronts with the evaluation of a single camera frame. This whole procedure is therefore very fast and robust against external influences such as vibrations.
The combination of the hardware sensor (SHSCam) with Optocraft’s SHSWorks evaluation software (included) makes for a powerful measuring system for a wide range of applications in the field of optics and lasers, e.g. :
- adjustment of optical systems
- evaluation of the imaging properties
- laser beam characterization
The SHSCam sensor family
Optocraft offers a variety of sensor models (SHSCam) that are optimized to correspond with their applications. They cover the spectral range from 193nm to 1700nm and have detection areas from 3.7 x 4.9mm² to 27.4 x 34.6mm²:
SHSLab performance examples
The outstanding performance of the SHSLab wavefront sensors is particularly evident when the going gets difficult. They can even measure strongly aberrated wavefronts and are therefore used, e.g. for aspheric testing. Adjustment processes are also made considerably easier because the sensors deliver reliable results even if the settings are initially off.
