Find Your Laser Power Or Energy Detector With A Product Configurator

There are many ways to find the laser beam measurement instrument you need on Gentec-EO’s website. Some browse by themselves through our product filter pages, some uses the search bar, while others use our product finder tool.

High-Power Lasers – Just Measure It

For a long time, it has not been possible to attenuate a beam with powers above the kilowatt range. Enter Ophir's LBS-300HP-NIR beam splitter, which can be used with laser power densities of up to 15 MW/cm2 at 5 kW.

Narrow Linewidth Lasers For Brillouin Light Scattering Spectroscopy

As magnetic materials gain increased importance for information technology, Brillouin light scattering spectroscopy (BLS) is the perfect technique to investigate the magnetic properties of such materials.

Highly-Dispersive Mirrors

The positive chirp introduced by most optical media in ultrafast systems can be compensated for using optical components, such as highly-dispersive mirrors, that feature negative dispersion.

Industry Insights
Using 1,064 nm Dispersive Raman For Ink And Paint Classification

In the past, Raman spectroscopy was not useful for forensics because most real-world samples have a vivid color, whose fluorescence could overwhelm Raman signals. This issue is resolved by BaySpec’s 1,064 nm excitation dispersive Raman systems that offer maximum reduction in fluorescence interference.

Lidar: Lasers Rule For Remote Distance Measurement

Autonomous vehicles, military ranging, atmospheric sensing, and traffic monitoring are just some of the applications for this versatile technique.

Measuring Large Engines For Small Gaps

When it comes to aircraft engines, the same method is applied at a fixed position, which allows for the highest possible level of repeatability and consistency. Besides engine blade measurement, the aerospace industry also uses the GapGun to check welds, as well as the fit of panels in airplane structures for inaccuracies that could cause aerodynamic disturbances or worse: quality problems.
