On-demand Webinar: High Power laser measurement challenges and solutions

Monitoring laser behavior in high-power applications is critical to keeping your process running properly. However, that monitoring – the laser measurement itself – is not trivial. There are many “little things” one could do that might unknowingly mess with the measurement, or even damage the instrument. For example: • At what point should the cooling…

Integrating Power Measurements Into Your Software Application With the Ophir Com Object

Ophir’s renowned StarLab software is an easy-to-use, yet powerful, laser measurement application which turns a PC into a laser power/energy multi-channel analysis workstation. However, StarLab is a ready-made closed PC application and communicates with Ophir Power Meters and PC Interfaces only. Let’s say you are a software programmer developing an application for a system in…

Watch: On-demand Webinar – Laser Measurement Solutions for Material Micro Processing Applications

If you use lasers in material “micro processing” applications – such as drilling via holes in PCBs, OLED display “lift-off”, cutting of smartphone cover glass – you already know how difficult the challenges are. The often delicate combination of laser parameters – ultra short pulse duration, high repetition rate, perhaps short wavelength among others –…

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…
