Basic principles of πShaper operation:

  • πShaper transforms Gaussian or similar intensity distribution of source laser beam to a flattop one;
  • TEM00 or multimode with Gaussian or similar intensity profile can be applied;
  • Galilean design, thus there are no intermediate focusing of a beam;
  • With changing the size of input beam the output beam profile changes as well, see description here;
  • When changing the shape of input beam it is possible to adapt the πShaper to provide flattop output profile, this adaptation is realized through changing the diameter of source beam; description of this adaptation is presented here.
