Measuring a pulsed laser is complex. Besides power, you also need to worry about pulse energy, frequency, and pulse width (duration). If you need to measure laser pulse energies — perhaps to monitor a process that uses them — you will most likely run into a variety of issues and challenges.

For instance:
  • How pulse frequency and pulse width can limit your measurement range
  • Damage threshold vs. pulse width
  • Beam size — how much of your aperture should you fill
In this webinar, you will learn how laser energy measurement works and how to do it right.

We’ll cover:
  • Technical principles behind energy measurement
  • Best practices for making sure you are getting accurate readings
  • How to avoid out-of-tolerance issues with your measuring tools
  • and more ...
