Nova II, a laser power/energy meter, has been launched by Ophir Optronics Inc. The instrument measures from picojoules and picowatts to hundreds of joules and thousands of watts, and it displays the power or energy with a high-resolution analog needle. It can be operated by battery or from an AC source with the charger plugged in. Features include laser tuning, data logging, graphing, normalize, power or energy density units, attenuation scaling, and maximum and minimum limits. The device is NIST-traceable and CE-marked.
