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.

Optical Alignment: A Simple Solution to an Infuriating Problem

Picture this:

You’re working on a complicated laser setup, with various beam splitters, attenuation, lenses and mirrors. You spend weeks optimizing the design, and months waiting for all the parts to arrive.

Now everything is here and you set it up to the millimeter.

And then the big moment. Where’s the laser?
