Do you know what the function of the collimator is? Today, Xiaobian will explain to you the function of the collimator.
The collimator is a component of the radiation head of a medical accelerator. The component that generates a radiation field with a certain shape and contour is called a collimation system, and the component that generates a radiation field with a regular shape contour is called a regular field collimation system.
The function of the collimator is to couple the light into the desired device with maximum efficiency or to accept the light signal with maximum efficiency. So it has an important parameter: insertion loss, the current technology can reach below 0.15dB.
The collimator belongs to an optical element used for input and output of optical fiber communication optical devices, and its structure is very simple – the divergent light from the optical fiber becomes parallel light (Gaussian beam) through a similar convex lens in front. Its function is to couple the light with maximum efficiency into the required device or to accept the maximum efficiency of the light signal. So it has an important parameter: insertion loss, and the process technology can reach below 0.15dB.
In addition to the primary and secondary collimators, the electron beam collimation is equipped with an electron beam limiter (Aplicator) below the radiation head. Its main function is to limit the range of electron radiation in order to protect normal tissues outside the target area. and protect vital organs from exposure.
At this point, everyone knows the function and advantages of the collimator. If you have any needs, please call us.
