|Imagine Optic is Europe’s leading provider of Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensing and analysis technology. Our customers know that they can depend on us to continually provide them with the best technology available. In this part of the site, you will find information about our technology and how it works.
Shack-Hartmann and HASO™ technology
We offer superior wavefront sensing performance with HASO wavefront sensors. Our HASO product line is based on Shack-Hartmann technology that allows users to measure starting from the first derivative in phase. Imagine Optic's mastery of this technology has enabled us to provide unequalled quality and performance to our customers. Learn more...
A subject overview of adaptive optics
The origins of adaptive optics lie
in our desire to get a better view of the universe
we live in. When a light wave travels through turbulence,
effects including thermal heating deform the phase
of the beam and alter its propagation and focus
properties. The objective of adaptive optics is
to restore the original properties of the wavefront
so it can be once again viewed correctly. Imagine
Optic has developed the hardware and software tools
that allow users to compensate for distortions in
light in various domains including laser correction,
microscopy and freespace communications. Learn more...
Wavefront correction technologies
There are three principal components in any adaptive optics system, otherwise called a loop. A wavefront sensor that measures light, a device that corrects the distortions present in the light and a software package that controls the interaction between these two elements. In this part of our site, we explain the various types of wavefront correction technologies currently available. Learn more...
