Altechna: PowerXP - Compact Motorized Attenuator

powerxp compact motorized attenuator

The PowerXP is a compact version of Altechna’s Motorized Attenuator. This device attenuates free space laser beam (or pulse) continuously without introducing additional energy fluctuations. Contrast better than 3000:1 (Tp:Ts) is achieved since this attenuator is mounted with high contrast polarizer. This very compact version of attenuator can be easily integrated in custom optical systems. Read on below for further details including video.

Features:

  • Very compact size
  • User-friendly software interface
  • Divides laser beam into two parallel beams of adjustable intensity ratio
  • High optical damage threshold
  • Low dispersion for femtosecond and high energy laser pulses
  • Stand-alone USB powered controller
  • Ideal for integration in other systems
