  • Compact and robust for easy integration
  • Up to 21 000 sampling points
  • Up to 1 kHz acquisition frequency



HASO R-Flex2 is the second generation of HASO4 R-Flex50 optical metrology tool that integrates HASO4 wavefront sensor with a collimator and light source.

It gives the capability of wavefront characterization from 400 to 1100 nm.

HASO R-Flex unites Imagine Optic’s patented HASO Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors with a collimator and a focusing module to provide users with a versatile and turnkey solution for precision characterization of optical systems and surfaces. Its standard accuracy of λ/200 in double pass configurations, and insensitivity to vibrations or atmospheric turbulence enable users to perform measurements that meet the most stringent requirements for reliable, repeatable results. Even more, accuracy can be further increased if the measured aberration is close to the diffraction limit.

Because different users have different needs, the f/# of HASO R-Flex can be adapted to each user’s requirements by choosing the focusing module best suited for the task at hand. As the sample f/# defines the best focusing module, Imagine Optic offers factory models that are available from f/#=<1 to ensure maximum sampling points, whereas custom models for special needs can equally be delivered. Please see the product page of standard focusing units.

HASO R-Flex2 has been designed to cover the 400-1100nm wavelength range. This broadens the capacity of the HASO R-Flex to inspect optical components in term of chromatic aberrations for example.

Characterizing large optical components or complex systems is performed easily as the exit beam is divergent, thereby allowing users to set to focal spot to any point. When set at the centre of concave mirrors, surface defects can be measured and analyzed.

HASO R-Flex is delivered with WaveView wavefront measurement and analysis software that runs under Windows 7 or Windows 10. It displays aberrations in real-time so that users can immediately see the effects of various positioning or alignment adjustments.

Its small footprint allows to it be easily mounted onto translation stages so samples can be measured on-axis or at any point in the field.
