Evaluating A Multimodal Beam: A Brief Tutorial Highlighting The Use Of BeamGage® PRO Partitioning

Lasers were initially designed as somewhat simple devices that operated in one fundamental mode. Soon after, researchers devised ways of generating and using more complex, higher-order multimode formats. This application note offers an example tutorial on how to evaluate a multimodal laser beam, highlighting the use of BeamGage® PRO Partitioning. Download the full paper for more information.
