Similar to laser radar, 3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of objects creating a point cloud of data from the surface of an object. The primary differentiator between laser radar and 3D scanning is the distance from the target. In this application, the laser is typically only few inches from the object under investigation. Short-pulsed lasers are typically used for this application, since the distance to the object is measured by looking at the roundtrip time-of-flight of each pulse, but frequency-modulated single-frequency fiber lasers can also be used for select applications. On this page, you will find a list of all of the lasers we offer, geared toward this application.
