Some modules are very specific to a particular process. Common interfaces and a decentralized approach minimize the effort of integration. An example is the process of aligning lenses for shaping the beam of high power laser diodes.
We have integrated our experience with fast axis and slow axis collimation into our LensAlignmentModule. The hardware integrates several sensors for beam profiling and power measurement as well as filter adaption to incoming laser powers. Based on the analysis of available sensor data the corresponding software module controls the active alignment of the FAC and SAC lenses.
