IRVINE, Calif. May 13, 2008 -- Newport Corporation has introduced its new 1936/ 2936C Benchtop meters, and according to Newport they have superb sensitivity, accuracy and speed. These optical power and energy meters offer measurement repetition rates up to 10kHz and frequency measurement of pulses up to 250kHz. In addition, Newport’s power meters are capable of power measurements of 11 fW to 20 kW and energy measurements of 7 µJ to 20kJ.

The 1936/2936-C Optical Power and Energy Meter is ideal for measuring optical power and energy from any type of laser, laser diode or broadband light source, in many applications including scientific research, product development, QA testing, and manufacturing. PH-1936-C_Newport.jpg

Newport’s new optical power and energy meters offer a wide range of features and benefits.  Users can select from six display colors to match their specific lighting conditions and laser eye wear.  Data storage is available via an internal 250,000 data point storage buffer or using an external USB flash drive. 

The 1936/2936-C also offers analog and digital filtering, USB and RS-232 computer interfaces, trigger in/out control with alarm levels, an analog bar graph with 10x zoom, advanced programming toolkit, color plotting, statistics and on-board data post-processing. They also support true Root-Mean-Square (RMS) measurements, providing the most accurate RMS value regardless of the shape of the input waveform.

The 1936-C and 2936-C are also compatible with a wide range of Newport detectors.  For low power measurements, these new optical power and energy meters can be combined with any one of Newport’s 918D Series Silicon, Germanium or Indium Gallium Arsenide Detectors.

For high-power measurements, the 1936/2936-C Series meters can be combined with the company’s 818P thermopile detectors.  In addition, these new instruments are also compatible with Newport’s 818E pyroelectric detectors for energy measurements of pulsed laser sources. 

Finally, pulse repetition rates from single shot to 10 kHz can be measured directly with these instruments, without having to rely on oscilloscope measurements.

GLOSSARY
photonics
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...
pulsed laser
A laser that emits energy in a series of short bursts or pulses and that remains inactive between each burst or pulse. The frequency of the pulses is termed the pulse-repetition frequency.
