Watch: On-demand Webinar – Measuring my Laser…Where do I start?
Learn the basic principles, and best practices of laser measurement You have a laser you’re about to start working with? You have enough experience with other technologies to know that you want to verify its performance; so you start looking for a tool to measure the laser’s…well, what? In other words: Where do I start?…continue reading
Detect Missed Pulses with Centauri External Triggering
If you are having problems with the performance of your pulsed laser and suspect that it might occasionally not be firing each and every pulse, then the Centauri power meter can help determine, and log, if and when there are indeed any ‘missed pulses’. Centauri can be configured to detect missed pulses when used together…continue reading
Destroy the Target, Not Everything Else: Beam Management in High-Power Directed Energy Laser Projects
Since Columbia University graduate student Gordon Gould and Bell Laboratories scientists Charles Townes and Arthur Schawlow (among others) coined the term LASER in the 1950’s, applications of the laser have seemed limitless. Working with these new discoveries had to be exciting, but applying hundreds of kilowatts of laser power, like the ones being used in…continue reading
Meet the Team: Anat Bakal, Our Japan and Israel Sales Manager, Reveals How Her Far Eastern Studies Brought Her to Ophir
What do you enjoy doing outside of work? I love to travel, explore new places, and meet new people. Traveling frees my mind and soul and I do it whenever I can. I enjoy traveling with my family and friends, discovering new cultures and tasting new flavors. I love extreme sports – rappelling, race driving,…continue reading
Surface Micro Structuring Using Ultrashort Laser Pulses
- by Efi Rotem
Surface micro structuring using ultra short pulse lasers is a unique technology with many applications such as thin film ablation, creating antireflective and optically absorptive surfaces, super hydrophobic or hydrophilic surfaces with anti-bacterial properties, and surface texturing for improved bonding strength. In the semiconductor and display industry, USP lasers perform very well-defined jobs such as…continue reading
Resolving Non-Contiguous Logged Measurements in StarLab
There are lots of tips and tricks for ensuring top performance of your laser power meter and sensor, and for obtaining the best possible measurements, and in the most convenient way. I would like to share one easy method to make it easier to process logged measurements from multiple sensors. The ‘Problem’ – Apparent gaps…continue reading
