Deflect laser beams the quick and accurate way

Electro-optic deflectors are the fastest and most effective tools for changing the direction of laser beams. The deflectors continuously deflect a laser beam using predefined angle ranges (scanning) or implement fast switching between freely selectable deflection angles (random access) with extreme precision.

During this process, a special non-linear electro-optic effect in certain, well-defined cut crystals of selected transparent materials is used to produce a linear refractive index gradient that is proportional to the signal voltage present. When a laser beam passes the gradient in a perpendicular manner, it is deflected slightly, whereby the deflection angle can be controlled due to the externally applied voltage.


Deflection systems

Electro-Optic Deflection Systems

Standard deflectors and models designed in an application-specific manner.

Deflection systems model 412

Deflector System for Optical Tweezers

Deflector for optical tweezers. The system contains two deflectors and one dual linear amplifier.

Conoptics laser nutator

Nutator Deflector

The 412 model is a specially developed electro-optic nutator to deflect an optical beam into two orthogonal axes. The system is used to scan linearly polarized, collimated beams over the aperture of a focus lens at a wavelength of 1,550 nm.
