Light Sheet Optics 610026

SKU: 610026

The Model 610026 light sheet optics is ideal for generating laser light sheet for PIV and PLIF applications.  It offers continuously adjusted focusing lens and cylindrical lens to provide the required light sheet for your optimal measurements.

Product Details

The Modular  light sheet optics has the capability to allow continuously adjustable focal length between 300 mm to 4000 mm, generating an extremely uniform beam thickness from the laser.  The light sheet optics can handle high power laser beams more than 500 mJ, with beam diameter of up to 9 mm. This capability allows the study of large wind tunnels with long focusing distance.

Two cylindrical lenses are provided with the Modular light sheet optics. The cylindrical lens diverges the incident laser beam in one direction, creating a flat sheet of light. The divergence is controlled by the focal length of the lens (i.e., the shorter the focal length, the faster the sheet diverges). The cylindrical lenses can also be used in combination (for example the –25 and –14) to give additional divergences, up to 50 degrees. 

The table below shows the light sheet dimensions with various focusing and cylindrical lenses:

t: Thickness of the light sheet at the waist in μm

h: Height of the light sheet at the waist in mm

D: Divergence of the light sheet in degrees


Features & Benefits

  • Modular design on the cylindrical lenses for the optimal light sheet area
  • Continuously adjustable focusing lens to get the thinnest light sheet
  • Compact and directly attached onto the laser head
