To apply a laser to an industrial process, medical therapy, or communications technology, it is usually necessary to modify the laser beam to achieve the desired results. Beam measurement tools make this possible. We will discuss how to match an appropriate laser beam profiling technique to a laser application, including building an aligned optical system, collimation and focusing, high power laser quality measurements, and proper attenuation techniques for making accurate laser measurements.
