Melles Griot Continues to Take the Lead in Measurement Instruments

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Irvine, California - Melles Griot announces the AlignMeter® a new instrument that simultaneously measures laser beam position and angular displacement for beams up to 8 mm in diameter.

Previously, angular displacement had to be calculated from time-consuming distance and position measurements. Now, with the AlignMeter, absolute angle and position can be measured with an accuracy of 1 mrad and 1µm, respectively, without having to know the distance of the source from the sensor. Results are updated at 10 Hz.

In addition to position and angle, the AlignMeter measures absolute output power from 10 µW to 10 mW at wavelengths ranging from 350 nm to 1.06 µm. The AlignMeter is a card-based system and requires a host PC. Models are available with either a standard PCI card or, for laptop users, a PCMCIA card. Applications include alignment of gimbals, robotic arms, fibers, lasers, wafers, and optical components.

Melles Griot is a leading global supplier of photonics products including optics, lasers, motion-control systems for the telecommunications industry, laser measurement instrumentation, and opto-mechanical hardware. The company has manufacturing and distribution activity in 41 countries worldwide and is a member of Barloworld Scientific.
