CANUNDA in brief

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.
