CANUNDA-AXICON has revolutionized the way in which axicons are used for micro-processing. Thanks to its reflective design, the beam properties are far superior to the classical refractive design: a beam without oscillation, much closer to the theoretical profile, is able to be generated through the very precise apex manufacturing; the beam is also free from chromatic dispersion, maintaining the pulse duration, thanks to the lack of transmission through glass.

The CANUNDA-AXICON has already been successfully used in combination with ultrashort pulse lasers for glass processing. Thanks to our catalog of standard products and online calculator, CANUNDA-AXICON has become easy to use: it is now possible to find the proper set-up for any given application.

The CANUNDA-AXICON can be used for many applications: glass drilling and cutting, ring generation for surgery, atom guiding and optical trapping, alignment and triangulation, etc.

Description

CANUNDA-AXICON is a reflective axicon lens that generates a high-quality Bessel beam for ultrashort pulse laser glass machining.

CANUNDA-AXICON has revolutionized the way in which reflective axicon lenses are used for micro-processing. Thanks to its reflective design, the beam properties are far superior to the classical refractive design: a beam without oscillation, much closer to the theoretical profile, is able to be generated through the very precise apex manufacturing; the beam is also free from chromatic dispersion, maintaining the pulse duration, thanks to the lack of transmission through glass.

The CANUNDA-AXICON has already been successfully used in combination with ultrashort pulse lasers for glass processing. Thanks to our catalog of standard products and online calculator, CANUNDA-AXICON has become easy to use: it is now possible to find the proper set-up for any given application.

CANUNDA-AXICON is available as a standalone optics or an EASY-BESSEL module. The EASY-BESSEL module further simplifies integration in an industrial environment with collinear optical input and output beams, integrated alignment tools, and the ability to easily change the axicon.

The CANUNDA-AXICON  feflective axicon lens can be used for many applications: glass drilling and cutting, ring generation for surgery, atom guiding and optical trapping, alignment and triangulation, etc.

Designed to improve laser processing, the CANUNDA range provides versatile and effective laser beam shaping. CANUNDA improves the quality, precision, speed and stability of processing for all types of laser source, whether single-mode or multimode.

The CANUNDA range of fully reflective solutions ensure stable, low-loss beam shaping capable of withstanding the high power of cutting or welding lasers or the high energy levels achieved by ultrashort pulse lasers for micromachining processes.

The CANUNDA-AXICON catalog offers a broad range of standard products from 0.25° to 3° apex angle over a bandwidth ranging from ultraviolet to infrared.
