Application Note

A Discussion Of Laser Beam Profiling And The Subject Of Accuracy

Source: Ophir Photonics

There is no calibration standard from which a camera system can be verified based on beam profiling measurement accuracy. The next best thing is to enhance the input (camera), and output (software algorithms) of the imaging system for improved precision and repeatable results. This application note discusses how to achieve beam profiling measurement accuracy without the use of a standard calibration method.
