The new Ophir CMOS High Resolution Beam Profiler – SP932U: Delivers the Most Accurate Laser Intensity Distribution Measurements

Many modern applications require high-quality analysis of the beam profile, especially in the popular NIR wavelength range. For example, when welding at 1064nm, power density and distribution is an important value that directly affects the yield of the system. That requires measuring laser beam size at the focus. The new Ophir SP932U beam profiler along…

The Focal Length Divergence Measurement Method

The Focal Length Divergence measurement method is based upon the beam width of a focused beam’s spot size and the focal length of the focusing optic. The Focal Length Divergence method provides a means for finding the far-field beam divergence at any point in the beam propagation path. As shown below, the calculation performed by the BeamGage® software…

Maintain Proper Laser Beam Parameters for Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM), including selective laser melting (SLM) and 3D printing, relies on its laser source to properly manufacture 3D-printed parts. The laser is at once the most essential element of the system, and the most vulnerable to degradation. Here are some of the malfunctions that can occur with an unmonitored laser system: Optical pass…
