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.…continue reading

Measuring Challenges of Wide and Divergent Beams
Article by: Yoni Groisman, Karol Sanilevitch, Roei Yiftah, Dr. Simon Rankel VCSELs, LEDs, edge emitting, and fiber lasers are used in many sensitive applications within fast-growing markets. To guarantee the high quality of the devices, it is essential to analyze the beam profile, but those wide, divergent beams place specific requirements on the measurement system.…continue reading
WB-I VIS: Wide Beam Imager for 350-1100nm wavelengths -Now operates with Ophir’s new, high resolution camera SP932U
The challenge Many applications involve widely diverging or large beams such as VCSELs, laser diodes, LEDs, and fiber lasers. Those devices operate in the UV, Visible, and NIR wavelengths and are used in many devices requiring 3D imaging, like face or gesture recognition, AR/VR, medical devices, and autonomous vehicles. To guarantee best performance in all…continue reading

Watch On Demand Webinar: Measuring Laser Beam Power with Photodiode Sensors – How to Get it Right
If you use Photodiode-based sensors to measure your beam power, there are a number of issues that can affect the accuracy of your measurements– and with some of these, you won’t even know there’s a problem … In this webinar, you will learn about: Some strange anomalies when measuring low-power pulsed beams (such as beams…continue reading
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
