Spectral Range VIS - NIR (400 - 1100 nm)

Phasics SID4 HR Vacuum wavefront sensor

The SID4 HR V is the first off-the-shelf vacuum-compatible wavefront sensor on the market, and opens new horizons for adaptive optics in high-energy laser facilities. Measure wavefront in-situ in actual experimental conditions, characterize laser beams inside the compressor vessel, and measure gas jet and plasma density next to the target! With Phasics’ unique strategy it is now possible to correct the aberrations of every single optical element up to the target location inside the vacuum chamber. The SID4 HR V can also be used to perform wavefront measurement during environmental testing campaigns.
