Diffractive Multifocal lenses (MF) are widely used for glass cutting applications. Holo/Or has develop a tailored focusing module for glass cutting applications, integrating MF with a focusing objective. Unlike refractive solutions, Holo/Or’s diffractive MF focus module works for single as well as multi mode lasers, and maintains diffraction limited spots size at all foci.
