Can I Use My Beamtrack Sensor With a Pulsed Laser?

The answer to this is, of course, it depends. It depends on the pulse frequency and it depends on which sensor you want to use. Thermopile detectors do not have very fast response times, so frequencies above 100Hz are effectively the same as CW to them and all BeamTrack functions will perform as expected. Below…

Watch: Ophir Premium Energy Sensors – Even for UV

Many laser applications use pulsed beams, and pulse widths are becoming very short – even fs pulses are not uncommon. UV wavelengths are particularly useful in many such applications; because of the high photon energy associated with the short wavelength, non-thermal mechanisms can be used to ablate or cut material. This enables some unique applications…

Integrating Spheres, Pulse Stretching & Asymmetry

One of the really useful features of integrating spheres is that they can have multiple detector ports. Thus, more than one detector can be attached to make different measurements in parallel. As for all measuring devices, we need to understand the nature of the device because it can affect the measurement results.

Measurement of Excimer Lasers

Lasers can be divided into many categories based on their principle of operation, wavelength, and output powers; here we will discuss the class of lasers known as Excimer lasers. An Excimer laser is a pulsed laser whose operation relies on the interaction between noble gases and halogen gases, induced by strong electrical voltages. These lasers…

Photodiodes – Remedy for a Weak Pulse

Considerations for using photodiodes to measure pulsed beams In most cases, pulsed beams are measured using pyroelectric detectors. However, for pulsed lasers with very high repetition rates (>100 kHz) or very weak pulses (<0.1 uJ), pyroelectric detectors won’t work.  If a measurement of average power is sufficient, then often a thermal sensor can be used. …
