Lisa Ackermann: High-Energy Beam Shaping
The recent publication of Lisa Ackermann deals with “Uniform and efficient beam shaping for high-energy lasers”. By setting two spatial light modulators in a proper arrangement, she realized a setup that enables tailored light fields even for high-energy pulsed lasers. Thus, she was able to create arbitrary laser illumination patterns with high efficiency and good quality.
Lisa Ackermann works at the Institute of Photonic Technologies, her supervisor is Michael Schmidt. The original publication can be found in Optics Express.
