Watch: Ophir Premium Energy Sensors – Even for UV

Many laser applications use pulsed beams, and pulse widths are becoming very short – even fs pulses are not uncommon. UV wavelengths are particularly useful in many such applications; because of the high photon energy associated with the short wavelength, non-thermal mechanisms can be used to ablate or cut material. This enables some unique applications…
