3D Scanning Lasers

3D Scanning Lasers Overview

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.

RPMC has years of experience supporting 3D Scanning applications, helping industry professionals select the right tool for the job.

Wedge Series

Wedge-XF-1064: 1064nm Picosecond Laser

The Wedge series of DPSS Lasers have been designed for OEM applications like micro machining of hard and soft materials, specialty marking, glass and crystals engraving, LIDAR, LIBS, Spectroscopy and medical diagnostics. High peak powers, with relatively low energy and heat generation, allows efficient ablation and non-linear interaction with most materials. The compact and lightweight package represents a great benefit in LIDAR and other aerospace applications, while short pulses give extremely precise time-of-flight measurements.
Second Harmonic (532 nm output) and wavelength conversion option widen the product application range.
