Applications - Pure science
  Our product line combines ease of use with the wide-ranging functionality that scientific users depend on for aligning and characterizing optical systems including telescope mirrors and other imaging instruments used in astronomy.  HASO™ wavefront sensors enable you to perform complete characterizations of laser beams including phase, intensity, M², and Strehl ratio.  When used in conjunction with adaptive optics systems, they allow you to optimize the beam's shape and focal spot.
