Variable Collimated Hollow Laser Beam Generator

Overview

Variable Collimated Hollow Laser Beam Generator is a device which has been developed to generate a collimated hollow laser beam of variable diameter from an input laser beam of Gaussian/uniform spatial profile (Figure-1). An Indian patent has been granted to this invention (Patent Number 269505, Grant Date 26-Oct-2015, Title: “An Apparatus for Generation of Collimated Hollow Laser Beam”).

Variable Collimated Hollow Laser Beam Generator

The invented Variable Collimated Hollow Laser Beam Generator can be used for a range of laser wavelength and power of the input beam. Hollow laser beams and their derivative Bessel beams (obtained by focusing a hollow beam) find applications in a variety of areas including basic R&D sciences and industries. Some of these are listed as following:

  1. Hollow beams are used for Laser Trepanning (i.e. drilling holes) in materials with precision and accuracy of micron size. The focused hollow beams (i.e. Bessel beams) with increased depth of focus are used for drilling holes in the range of sub-mm to few micron size without movement of the material piece.
  2. Hollow beams and Bessel beams are also used in laser welding of materials.
  3. Hollow/Bessel beams are also used as tweezers for trapping of particles and biological cells.
  4. Large diameter hollow beams can be used in laser scanning applications.

SPACE REQUIRED

  • 12ft x 12ft space is sufficient.

INFRASTRUCTURE REQUIRED

  • Mechanical workshop for fabrication of axicon mirrors and the mechanical hardware for the setup. Alternatively, this can also be done by outsourcing the same within the country.
  • The axicon mirrors need to be surface finished with diamond turning machine. This can also be done by outsourcing within the country.
  • Some optics like polarizing beam splitter (PBS) and quarter-waveplates are required, which are easily commercially available.

MANPOWER REQUIREMENT

  • One person skilled in optics can assemble and test the device in 2-3 days, if components are ready.
