How to Use LabVIEW to Automate Measurement of High Frequency VCSEL
When measuring high frequency sources, one usually must decide whether they need to know the average power or the temporal pulse shape. Use a precision photodiode to measure average power, but a very fast photodiode must be used for pulse shape characterization. Ophir’s IS1.5-VIS-FPD800 sensor integrates both types of photodiode so you can measure average…continue reading
Monitoring your laser Position and Beam Size over time in StarLab with a BeamTrack sensor
StarLab is Ophir’s easy-to-use, yet powerful, laser measurement software that turns a PC into a multi-channel laser power / energy display station. BeamTrack sensors are a unique series of Ophir thermopile sensors that can measure beam position and beam size while measuring power at the same time, all combined in one sensor. BeamTrack sensors provide…continue reading
Optical Power Measurement Solutions for Telecom Applications
Telecom applications can employ lasers over a very wide range of powers–which requires sensors suitable for anywhere from 10 picowatts to 300 milliwatts. Read about Ophir’s Optical Power Measurement Solutions for Telecom Applicationscontinue reading
Quasar and Starlab Bring Wireless Laser Power Measurements to Your PC
The Quasar Bluetooth PC interface device is a small wireless power meter which attaches to Ophir power/energy sensors.
