Coherent Inc. has announced that its LaserCam-HR high-resolution laser beam profiler now features the 4.3.X version of BeamView-USB software, which includes an improved interface for increased speed and enhanced ease of use. Its “analysis only” function enables off-line analysis of previously acquired data. The software supports a variety of data storage media, including USB devices, network drives, RAM disks and internal RAM. The profiler is based on a 1280 × 1024-pixel sensor and produces accurate intensity profiles of CW and pulsed laser beams 0.26 to 6 mm in diameter, with spectral sensitivity from 300 to 1100 nm. A USB 2.0 interface enables plug-and-play connectivity and eliminates the need for a frame grabber card in the host computer.
