NORTH LOGAN, Utah, Feb. 25, 2013 — Ophir Photonics Group has launched the L11059 USB large-format beam-profiling camera for measuring large laser beams that require fast frame rates, low noise and high responsivity. The camera’s high-resolution 4008 × 2672-pixel format profiles beams up to 24 × 36 mm without the need for reduction optics. It includes 50-mm neutral-density filters, providing maximum power density measurements to 15 mW/cm2
without additional attenuation. Speeds of up to 3.1 fps are supported at full resolution, and up to 17 Hz in 4 × 4 binning mode.
The compact, lightweight camera measures continuous-wave laser beams over a spectral range from 190 to 1100 nm. Dynamic range is 59 dB. A global shutter allows simultaneous integration of the entire pixel array. The short exposure time is suitable for capturing objects in high-speed motion. The USB 2.0 digital interface transfers measurement data to laptops and desktop computers.
The camera works with BeamGage laser beam analysis software, which includes all the algorithms and calculations needed to make accurate, ISO-approved laser beam measurements. It provides 2- and 3-D viewing, advanced image processing features, NIST-traceable power measurements, and multilingual support for English, Japanese, Chinese and German.
Designed for large laser applications, such as semiconductor fabrication, BeamGage and the L11059 large-format camera can capture and analyze beams widths to 35 mm.
The camera works with BeamGage Professional or BeamGage Enterprise software. BeamGage Professional features a comprehensive set of beam analysis algorithms, the BeamMaker beam simulator, partitioning of the camera output for separate analysis of multiple laser beams from sources such as fiber, a .NET interface for full remote control when integrating beam analysis into an automated application, and camera sharing. BeamGage Enterprise adds support for high-speed networked cameras, including Gigabit Ethernet.
