How to Find the Perfect Laser Beam Profiler

I wish I could tell you that there is one super-profiler, and it will profile any laser with 100% accuracy! Of course that’s a pipe dream. There are tons of different laser types, so it stands to reason that we’ll need several different profilers to cover the range of lasers.  There are cameras and scanning slit…

How to Profile Large, Small, and High Power Laser Beams

Don’t you wish there was a one size fits all beam profiler? I know I do. Problem is that the very thing that makes a beam profiler so perfect for one laser renders it useless for a different laser. At risk of overcomplicating matters, we like to provide our customers with maximum flexibility.  So you…

How to Increase Laser Welding Efficiency and Reduce Scrap

Stop me when this sounds familiar. Your laser welding system is not producing the quality welds you expected. You know what your laser’s power density should be and where the laser should be focused, but you never know what it actually is, or where it’s really focused.

How to Profile an Ultraviolet Excimer Laser

Ultraviolet excimer lasers are important for many applications: primarily medical and photolithography, but not exclusively.  Measuring them, however, is not always so simple. We recently encountered a company that needed to know how evenly their excimer laser beam was distributed in space.  They tried imaging their beam with specialized ultraviolet cameras, but all they got…

How to Profile Very Short Pulsed Laser Beams

A laser beam profiler is more or less a specialized camera rigged to measure beam width, divergence, and other qualities of the laser’s spatial intensity distribution. So, like any camera, it has a trigger which takes a given amount of time to open the shutter. Let’s say for argument’s sake that it take only 10μs…

The All-in-One Laser Beam Analysis Machine

So, you want to measure your laser… What comes to mind first? A laser power meter?  Okay… Let’s say I’m using a laser to cut sheets of metal and I have a power meter to check that it is outputting the correct power.  But even if I know that my laser produces 50W with 99.9%…
