The world’s highest light resistant LCOS-SLM
10 Jan 2024
The latest LCOS SLM (Liquid Crystal On Silicon - Spatial Light Modulator) developed by Hamamatsu Photonics, the X15213-03CL, delivers the world’s highest power handling capability up to 700 W. This was achieved by harnessing the company’s unique thermal design technology which enhances heat dissipation performance.
The X15213-03CL is an optical component designed for laser beam machining of metal materials which also allows free control of laser beam patterns and vastly boosts production efficiency when used for specific applications. This includes metal 3D printing, where metal powder is sintered by laser to form solidified parts for aircraft and transport equipment, as well as laser metal welding and cutting.
