Chiller Requirements for High Power Meters

Water-cooled sensors are used for measuring high power lasers. Here’s a short guide on selecting the right chiller. Three things define the chiller performance (and sensor cooling requirements): Water flow rate Water temperature Pressure I’ll explain each, but first, here’s a table of the requirements for each water-cooled sensor: Flow Rate Flow rate is important…

How to Trap More Than 99.9% of a Laser Beam

Sometimes a laser is used in a “pass-through” setup, which begs the question: What happens to the laser after it passes through?

Consider for example a sensitive camera that is used to profile a laser. Beam splitters are often used to deflect only a small percent of the laser intensity into the camera. The other 90% or more passes straight through the splitter.

Laser Beam Dumps: The Safe Way to Trap High Power Lasers

If your application involves a laser which is not always on the target, such as the following setup, you might need a beam dump. Consider this: The deflectable mirror is used to direct the laser to its intended target
