Noncontact Laser Beam Monitoring
Jan 2015Ophir, PhotonicsRequest Info
Lasers are reaching incredible power levels ... up to 100 kW and higher. But high powers are difficult to profile by conventional techniques. Ophir-Spiricon’s BeamWatch® is the first industrial beam monitoring system to quickly and accurately measure high-power lasers – YAG, fiber, diode, disk – without contacting the laser beam. Designed for material processing applications, BeamWatch instantly measures focus spot size and dynamically measures focal plane location during startup.
