Highest value dynamic laser interferometer

The vibration-immune, easy to use PhaseCam 4030.

A compact, lightweight, dynamic laser interferometer with simple, manual controls and 4MP sensor, for measurement of optics and optical systems.

PhaseCam 4030 Description

The PhaseCam® 4030 is a compact, lightweight dynamic laser interferometer with simple, manual controls for measurement of optics and optical systems. Building on the capabilities of the industry-standard PhaseCam 4020, the 4030 features a new 4MP  sensor and 4Sight Focus analysis software for incredible value and measurement power.

The PhaseCam 4030 incorporates patented Dynamic Interferometry® technology, making wavefront measurements over 5000 times faster than a temporal phase shifting interferometer. With such short acquisition time the PhaseCam is immune to vibration and can be used under almost any conditions—without vibration isolation or turbulence control. Use the PhaseCam throughout the production floor, in clean rooms and in environmental test chambers, without vibration isolation.

The new PhaseCam 4030 is ideal for measuring large, focal optics and optical systems, such as concave telescope mirrors and lens systems. It is equally well suited for testing small aperture afocal components such as flat mirrors and collimators. It can even measure moving parts such as deformable or scanning mirrors, spinning disks, or vibrating membranes.

What to expect

The PhaseCam 4030 is a fully-manual, easy to use interferometer offering the best value for dynamic measurement of surface shape and wavefront transmission.

It’s ideal for general use throughout the optical shop, including long optical-path measurement of large focal systems, concave telescopes mirrors, lens systems and adaptive optics. It’s also great for testing small aperture afocal components such as flat mirrors and collimators.
