The PE50BBH pyroelectric detector has been launched by Ophir Optronics Inc. for general use on pulsed lasers. The spectrally flat instrument has a surface reflectivity rating of ~5%, a maximum long pulse width rating of 1 ms and a noise level of 2 µJ. It handles a maximum pulse rate of 1000 Hz and delivers maximum average power of 15 W. The lowest measurable energy on the short-pulse setting is 20 µJ and, on the long setting, 100 µJ. Energy scales are from 200 µJ to 10 J, damage threshold is 0.2 J/cm2, and linearity is ±1.5% for >10% of full scale.
