Focus shift monitoring of high power lasers

Measuring the focal spot of a high power laser is challenging, at best.

The main issue is that when a high power laser is focused down to a small point, the power density can be extremely high, typically high enough to damage any sort of measurement equipment you would use.

The solution?
