About This Webinar

Lasers with large beam divergence are used in a number of applications, such as remote sensing, optical communications, and materials processing. Large beam divergences create challenges for reliably characterizing lasers. This is primarily because the beam size from such lasers grows quickly over a short distance, and beam conditioning optics and sensors used to measure these beams can have a strong angular dependence.

In this webinar, Derrick Peterman, Ph.D., will discuss methods for reliably characterizing the beam power and profile of divergent sources, so that users will be able to better understand how their lasers are performing in critical applications.

Who should attend:
R&D, engineering, manufacturing/production, test, and measurement/QC professionals whose work involves lasers, especially those with large beam divergence. All those looking for an introduction or extended learning on how to characterize beam power and profile of divergent sources. The aim of this webinar is to help assess and troubleshoot beam profiles.
