  • Laser Pulse Energy Sensors
Nov 2007

For High Peak-Power Lasers
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2007 -- Two new laser pulse energy sensors from Coherent Inc. are specifically designed for use with very high energy/peak power lasers operating at low repetition rates, such as those based on Nd:YAG, ruby and Ho:YAG, the company said.

The first of these EnergyMax sensors is a 50-mm-diameter YAG/harmonics detector that can operate at 1064 nm, 532 nm, 355 nm and 266 nm without the need to change diffusers or any other accessories. The second is an infrared (IR) sensor with a 25-mm diameter that can work throughout the 694-nm to 2.1-µm wavelength range without any reconfiguration. Both sensors enable pulse energy measurements from 1.5 mJ to 3 J, and are intended for repetition rates of less than 50 Hz, Coherent said.

In addition, all EnergyMax sensors are now configured as "smart" devices that incorporate onboard electronics to automatically correct for ambient temperature, as well as built-in wavelength compensation factors.

They provide plug and play compatibility with several Coherent meters (3sigma, FieldMaxII TOP, FieldMaxII-P, EPM1000 and EPM2000 meters) that range from handheld units, suitable for field service personnel, to laboratory instruments that feature a wide range of statistical analysis and data logging capabilities, the company said.

That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
