Osela’s True Gaussian Laser (TGL) uses unique optical technology to produce a fiber-like diffraction limited beam in a compact standalone free space module. The technology allows for maintaining of a high Gaussian fit (>95%) over a long working range with no secondary lobes that are typically found with direct diode lasers. Another advantage of the TGL is its ability to project circularized laser beams from direct laser diodes while maintaining its true Gaussian performance. While many other current market solutions offer circularization, it does so at the expense of beam quality.
