The Shock Absorber from Ophir Photonics is a mounting post designed to allow sensitive pyroelectric laser power/energy sensors to operate in an environment with vibration. Pyroelectric energy sensors measure the heat deposited in repetitive laser pulses. The special mount smoothes out vibration and eliminates false triggering, reducing by two to 20 times the sensors’ susceptibility to vibration, according to the company. The Shock Absorber eliminates false signals and leaves intact the sensitivity to good signals. It provides more accurate measurement of the low-energy pulsed lasers that often operate in noisy environments. The company’s products have applications in the medical and research sectors.
