Spherical Beamsplitters

Ability to tune at the angle of incidence, novel geometry, reduced aberration.

Results in lower complexity, lighter component footprint, and more efficient systems.

“Ferson Technologies announced today that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM) for a license to develop a novel optical beamsplitter design. This advanced beamsplitter design is spherical and it will allow for a smaller form factor and new laser interferometry features.”

Angle of Incidence Tuning

Spherical beamsplitters allow for tuning at the angle of incidence. This means fewer moving parts are required to get collimated light onto the source than traditional flat or cubical beamsplitters.

Novel Geometry

Spherical novel geometry means the light angle does not change no matter the entry point. This allows for system designs never before possible.

Increased Efficiency

Spherical beamsplitters allow for lower complexity designs with reduced aberration and error. This means fewer mechanical components and moving parts, and more efficient systems.
