Why and How to Profile Challenging Laser Applications

We introduce three techniques for monitoring the critical characteristics of the beam as the laser is used in three very different applications: (a) VSCEL / Laser Diode Mode and beam divergence, (b) Additive Manufacturing lasers used is 3D SLM / SLS, and (c) Fiber welding / heat treating / cleaning lasers. We will discuss three…

Calibrating Sensors: Have You Forgotten Anything?

Sensors used for measuring laser power or energy should be calibrated regularly. Frequently, customers sending a sensor to our calibration laboratory for the first time will neglect to include the accessories that go with it. The consequence is that the calibration cannot be carried out, causing delays. But which sensors have specific accessories – and…
