Fixed Ratio Beam Expanders

A range of fixed ratio beam expanders designed and manufactured by Linos are available for both 532nm and 1064nm laser systems. These beam expanders are available with fixed ratios of 2x, 5x and 10x. For applications such as laser marking the beam expanders can be used in combination with Linos F-Theta lenses.

The Linos range of beam expanders employ the minimum number of lens elements position beam waists away from lens surfaces to reduce the risk of optics damage by the high energy densities required in beams for laser material processing. Component lifetime has been further enhanced by the use of an improved coating and a more durable fused silica entrance lens.

Variable beam expanders are also available for wavelengths 355nmm, 405nm, 532nm, 633nm, 860nm and 1064nm. Customised beam expanders are available for OEM customers.
