Watch: How to Measure Low Power, Slowly Pulsing Beams (“Low Frequency Power”)

Are you trying to measure a low-power, slowly pulsing beam (think of a VCSEL beam for example) – and getting frustrated? Measuring low-power, slowly pulsing beams using photodiode sensors can be surprisingly tricky. Learn about the technical challenges you’ll face when trying to measure such beams, and about the Ophir solutions that will help you.…

Detect Missed Pulses with Centauri External Triggering

If you are having problems with the performance of your pulsed laser and suspect that it might occasionally not be firing each and every pulse, then the Centauri power meter can help determine, and log, if and when there are indeed any ‘missed pulses’. Centauri can be configured to detect missed pulses when used together…

Destroy the Target, Not Everything Else: Beam Management in High-Power Directed Energy Laser Projects

Since Columbia University graduate student Gordon Gould and Bell Laboratories scientists Charles Townes and Arthur Schawlow (among others) coined the term LASER in the 1950’s, applications of the laser have seemed limitless. Working with these new discoveries had to be exciting, but applying hundreds of kilowatts of laser power, like the ones being used in…
