A Shortcut for Calculating Laser Power Density

This post was originally posted in 2012.  It is still very popular, so I wanted to share it here in case you get some value from it. Here’s a laser power density calculator, if that’s what you wanted. Laser engineers and technicians are often required to calculate a laser’s power density to determine whether a beam…

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…

Fighting Viruses with UV-C LED: Will All the Research Soon Pay Off?

The world remains in a continuing state of uncertainty due to the new COVID-19 coronavirus. Face masks and disinfectants are selling very well. Disinfection with UV light could offer a way of disinfecting larger areas without the use of chemical disinfectants, especially in hospitals where patients are being treated.

Ultraviolet Excimer Laser Profiling – Challenges And Solutions

An excimer laser, sometimes more correctly called an exciplex laser, is a form of ultraviolet laser which is commonly used in the production of microelectronic devices, semiconductor based integrated circuits or “chips”, eye surgery, and micromachining. As important as ultraviolet excimer lasers are for many applications, measuring them, is not always such an easy task.

Special Photodiodes for Special Lasers (and Other Sources)

For most cases of laser (or LED) power measurement, selection of a proper sensor is fairly simple – it all depends on power level and wavelength. But for some cases, the application demands a more tailor-made sensor. Ophir’s line of “Special Photodiode” sensors are made for just that purpose.  There are now Special PD sensors…
