Deliver on the dreams and prosperity

SANTEC releases OEM focused LCOS-Spatial Light Modulator for high power laser (model:SLM-30).

Product name: Spatial Light Modulator
Module code: SLM-30

SANTEC, a leading design and manufacturer of tunable lasers, optical instruments, OCT products, and fiber-optic components, has developed a new LCOS-type OEM focused spatial light modulator (LCOS-SLM) for high power lasers, model : SLM-30. SLM-30 is a LCOS-SLM specifically designed for high power laser applications by optimizing the liquid crystal and heat dissipation structure, enabling high power handling in the 200W range, 100 times higher than conventional models. The LCOS head uses a water-cooled heat sink with high cooling performance. This can contribute to improved processing efficiency and precision in laser processing, 3D printers, laser trimming for ICs, and other applications that use high-power lasers in the main wavelength bands. Three wavelength bands are supported: 532 nm, 800 nm, and 1064 nm. The SLM-30 will enable higher performance in optical applications such as wave-front correction, optical beam shaping for laser processing, biosensing and quantum computing.

- Beam reshaping for laser processing
- Beam steering
- Diffractive optics
