The Beam Expanders are optical systems used to amplify the diameter of the beam laser.
The most common type of Beam Expander is derived from the Galilean telescope, which has one negative input lens and one positive output lens.
The input lens presents a virtual beam focus, the positive lens a real focus.
For low expansion ratios the Galilean telescope is often employed due to its simplicity, small package size and low cost.
The Galilean design beam expander provides an adjustable focus for collimation at the variation of wavelengths, and to control divergence correction.
We manufacture a variety of laser beams expander to suit most lasers . Six expansion ratios are available (2x,4x,6x,8x,10x,13x).
In addition to the standard products, Opticalray is able to provide custom beam expanders optimally tailored to suit you exact needs. Custom beam expanders can be produced to provide lower wavefront distortion different from expansion ratio, higher transmission and a very low damage threshold, and an even larger output beam diameter.
As the size of the beam increases, the divergence decreases proportionately.
The lens has a coating antireflection for higher transmission, over 98,5%.
You can find the Beam Expanders in three ranges; A (450-750nm),B(700-1050nm),C(1050-1650nm) e for the wavelengths of HeNe 632nm.
The wavefront distortion is of less than λ/4 and guarantees a minimum focused spot size even at long ranges.
The reflection for the three ranges A,B,C is ≤ 1.2% and for the HeNe = 0.9%
   - Reflection range A ≤1% Coating VIS
   - Reflection range B ≤ 1% Coating NIR
   - Reflection range C ≤ 1.2% Coating IR
   - Range A design to 532nm
   - Range B design to 850nm
   - Range C design to 1350nm
