University Research Team Faces Challenges Of Measuring Multiple Lasers

Source: Ophir Photonics

There are often times where several laser sources must be tested, validated, or qualified for a particular project. Unfortunately, by the time scientists realize that these measurements need to be made, the laser systems are typically already in place, the experiments are ready to be conducted, and any delays could be counterproductive. Therefore, laser measurement equipment needs to be cost effective, commercially available, easy to use, quick to set up, and operate at a high level of performance. This application note describes the challenges a university had in measuring three different lasers, and how they solved this problem with the Ophir-Spiricon XC-130 InGaAs beam profiling camera.
