Need custom optical test equipment?

Why start from scratch when you can order a PSM from our website?

It may surprise you but about 15% of Point Source Microscopes (PSMs) purchased are built into custom optical test hardware. Optical Perspectives supplies a CAD model of the PSM to help the customer integrate the PSM into their test hardware design. When the custom hardware is built the PSM is bolted in place, connected to its computer and the test hardware is ready to use as an autocollimator, alignment device or centering sensor.

COTS Approach

This COTS approach reduces the time and cost of custom optical test hardware by avoiding the development and procurement phase of obtaining a precision sensor and software for optical test equipment.

The PSM is compact and lightweight so it is easy to mount to almost any structure via the many tapped mounting holes in its body. Two USB connections to a computer with installed and proven PSM Align software is all that is needed to be up and running.

If a change is needed in the software to optimize the PSM for your application it is easily made on industry standard, LabVIEW™ based, PSM Align software. Optical Perspectives will even provide the source code if a customer wants to introduce their own modifications.

PSM Form Factor

The PSM coupled with its custom, precision tip/tilt mount and right angle adapter is an autocollimator with better than 1 arc second resolution.

In this configuration, the output beam can be oriented 360 degrees relative to the PSM body and the total package has a form factor of 160 x 110 x 54 mm and a mass of about 1 kg.

For use as an alignment or centering sensor the PSM has a form factor of 200 x 110 x 32 mm and a mass of less than 1 kg. 

PSM configured for mounting on a CMM in place of the touch probe

There are also adapters to mount the PSM in other centering devices or for mounting as the sensor on a CMM in place of a touch probe.

Use with a CMM is ideal for aligning complex, precision optical systems to assure that all components are positioned exactly to design to CMM accuracies.

Case Studies & Testimonials

  • "Just wanted to share a recent success aligning an adaptive optics test bed with the PSM. We used to use a traditional alignment telescope in the past, but the PSM made the whole process really easy and fast. The main requirements were to quickly determine the quality of beam collimation and pupil conjugates since there are several beam expanders and compressors with multiple pupil and focal planes."
