Wide Angle Diffusers are used to create diffused top hat beam profiles in one dimension and are available in angles of 25 or 125°. These diffusers can be easily paired for diffusion in two dimensions for square or rectangular output profiles with a steep edge slope and high homogeneity. These diffusers have increased transmission efficiency and uniformity versus standard ground glass diffusers. Wide Angle Diffusers are an eye-safe refractive optical element (ROE) with no zero-order and no hot spots. These diffusers are ideal for integration into LIDAR, heads up displays (HUDs), time of flight, 3D sensing, and machine vision applications.
Note: These are designed for use with collimated light with a minimum beam size of 2.5mm FW/e². Use with diverging beams or beam arrays will change output profiles.
