Laser Beam Profiling And Infrared Cameras
By Raf Vandersmissen, Xenics

One of the key parameters for understanding how a laser will perform in an application is the spatial intensity distribution. In many industrial laser cutting or welding applications, monitoring the beam quality is critical for successful operation. This white paper addresses the general need for laser beam profile analysis, describes laser beam analysis instruments, and provides an overview of laser applications, in particular for infrared wavelengths.
