MKS Ophir, Light & Measurement

Using SWIR, MIR, and FIR lasers requires knowledge of their beam quality parameters. Many considerations significantly impact the laser process, such as mode structure, positional stability, and propagation characteristics. An understanding of performance qualities can ensure that the user finds successful outcomes and reduces scrap and other unwanted results.

Numerous products and techniques have been developed to enable the measurement of beam quality parameters for long-wavelength light sources. Kevin D. Kirkham presents the types of measurement tools that are available for long-wavelength sources, and he helps determine which tools are appropriate for different application types. These tools include IR cameras, pyroelectric scanning-slit sensors, and wavelength conversion apparatus.
