Diffractive Beam Splitters are periodic phase structures that split the input beam into multiple diffractive orders while retaining the divergence angle, diameter and polarization of the input beam.
Applications such as LIDAR, colour separation, materials processing, surgery or metrology can benefit from the use of beam splitters to better distribute the energy emitted by a laser and thus improve efficiency an performance. Furthermore processes like welding can show better results by using multiple laser beams with given spacing angles and power ratios.
Jenoptik Diffractive Beam Splitters efficiently divide a single laser beam into multiple beams with well-specified spacing, intensity ratios and beam pattern symmetries. Polarizing beamsplitters are also available allowing the s and p polarization to be split.
