Selecting a laser module to fit an application should be a fluid process. From identifying key specifications to testing and potentially customizing the final laser, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution.
In recent years, market demand for laser processing has increased due to its inherent advantages and technological development. 808nm VCSELs aim to further expand the applications of solid-state lasers.
Measurement of high-power lasers requires efficient heat control in power meter sensors. Choosing the right heat transfer method is a critical step in configuring a reliable, accurate high-power laser meter.
Not all laser applications are as futuristic as Star Wars, but some of the applications involving high-power lasers get pretty close! From nuclear fusion to measuring the distance to the Moon, lasers have found all sorts of surprising uses.
Gentec-EO’s new IS power detectors combine the speed of photodetectors with the attenuation of integrating spheres. Combining these two technologies with Gentec-EO’s own recipe for a high damage-threshold absorber offers many advantages.
This application note aims to explain the techniques for using pyroelectric detectors to measure the power and energy in CW and pulsed lasers. Also explored are the applications and subtleties that make these devices ideal for numerous power and energy uses.
