Laser Components' partners PLX Inc announce the new hollow beamsplitting pentamirror (HBPM). The HBPM extends the range of a pentamirror through multiple outputs at 90° from one another. The HBPM’s invariance ensures that this 90° angle is preserved regardless of various unintended movements of the assembly. The product introduces an array of new possibilities for alignment and optical setups, making it a powerful tool for surveying, laboratory experimentation and a variety of metrology applications.
The HBPM is a hollow assembly, meaning that it does not suffer from the wavelength limitations associated with solid pentaprisms. The standard HBPM is designed to operate over the 400-700nm visible spectrum, with other custom wavelength intervals possible. This versatility, along with its intrinsic accuracy, makes the HBPM ideal for setting up orthogonal optical axes for experiments and surveying.
