GCO140123 Beam Expanders
A beam expander is an optical system for changing the diameters of input and output beams. The product of the diameter and divergence for a laser beam remains constant between input and output. This means that, if the beam diameter increases from input, the divergence of the output will decrease. Beam expanders use this inverseproportional relationship between the diameter and divergence to expand a laser beam, or to reduce the beam divergence. Low divergence allows for a smaller focus spot of a Gaussian beam.
In summary, beam expanders are used for fine focusing, reducing beam divergence and minimizing diffraction effect. Daheng Beam Expanders (GCO14) are professionally designed for complicated systems and ideally used in combination with Daheng FTheta lenses (GCO31).
