  1. Ophir Photonics Announces Low Noise, High Sensitivity Radiometer For Measuring Powers Down To 300fW

    Ophir Photonics Group announces at SPIE Photonics West 2016 the RM9-PD Radiometer, a sensor for measuring the power of very low level CW or quasi CW sources. The RM9-PD integrates a photodiode sensor and an 18Hz chopper into an easy-to-use system that measures very low powers, and is calibrated over the entire range of wavelengths, from 0.2µm to 1.1µm.

  2. Ophir-Spiricon Introduces M2 Beam Propagation Software For Pyrocam™ Pyroelectric Laser Beam Profiling Cameras

    Ophir Photonics announced at SPIE Photonics West 2016 the new M2 Beam Propagation software for the Pyrocam™ family of pyroelectric laser beam profiling cameras. Designed for measuring laser quality, the software incorporates M2calculations that predict how a laser will focus and beam propagation parameters (BPP) that describe how the laser diverges as a function of the beam waist width.

  3. Ophir Photonics Announces Starviewer, Mobile App For Viewing Laser Power/Energy Measurements On Smartphones And Tablets

    Ophir Photonics announced at SPIE Photonics West 2016 a new Android app that brings laser power/energy measurements to Android smartphones and tablets called StarViewer. StarViewer can be used with virtually any Ophir thermopile, photodiode, or pyroelectric PE-C laser sensor. Data can be displayed in a variety of formats: time-based line graph, needle display, or large numeric display with statistics.

  4. Ophir Photonics Announces High Damage Threshold Sensor for Measuring Low Average Power Pulsed Lasers

    Ophir Photonics Group announced today the release of the 3A-PF-12 thermal power/energy laser measurement sensor for short pulsed lasers. The new sensor replaces the P type absorber with the high damage threshold PF type, giving it the industry's highest energy density damage threshold for repetitive pulses.

  5. Ophir Photonics Announces Laser Sensors That Measure High Laser Powers Without Water Cooling

    Ophir Photonics recently announced the release of four new thermal laser sensors designed for measuring high pulse energies without needing large, water-cooled devices. Designed for use with high powered lasers, the L40(150)A, L40(150)A-LP1, L50(150)A, and L30C-LP1-26-SH are compact sensors that measure high laser energies up to 8000J.

  6. Ophir-Spiricon's Releases New Version Of BeamWatch® Non-Contact Beam Monitoring System

    Ophir Photonics recently announced the release of their newest version of BeamWatch, the only non-contact beam monitoring system for high power YAG, and diode lasers used in industrial material processing applications. The new version has additional 3D views, time charts, and dynamic measurements of industrial laser spot sizes down to 55µm.

  7. U.S. Army & Ophir-Spircon Partner in Recruiting Program

    The U.S. Army Recruiting Command and Ophir-Spiricon company recently signed an agreement stating that qualified Soldiers participating in the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program will have priority hiring status. Harmon, Commander of the Salt Lake City Army Recruiting Battalion, signed the agreement with Gary Wagner, General Manager of Ophir-Spiricon, during a ceremony at Bridgerland Applied Technology College.

  8. Ophir Announces NanoScan™ 2s Scanning Slit Laser Beam Profiler For Sub-Micron Measurements

    Ophir recently announced the release of the new NanoScan™ scanning slit laser beam profiler designed for instant sub-micron measurements of beam position and size for CW and kilohertz pulsed lasers. The profiler offers silicon, germanium, or pyroelectric detectors to allow profiling of lasers in any wavelength.

  9. Ophir Photonics Announces StarBright: Advanced Laser Power/Energy Meter With Multiple Display Formats

    Ophir Photonics announces StarBright, a new laser power/energy meter, at the LASER World of PHOTONICS 2015. The StarBright meter measures power, single shot energy, repetitive energy, frequency, and beam size for a wide range of thermal, pyroelectric, and photodiode laser sensors. StarBright features a brightly lit, 320x240 pixel color display with large, 16mm digits for enhanced readability of power and energy measurements, from pW's to kW's and pJ's to hundreds of Joules.

  10. Ophir-Spiricon Announces BeamWatch® at LASER World Of Photonics 2015

    Ophir Photonics announces their latest version of Beamwatch as LASER World of Photonics 2015. Beamwatch is the only non-contact beam monitoring system for high-power YAG, fiber, and diode lasers used in industrial material processing applications. The new version is equipped with high magnification optics that can now measure beams with spot sizes as small as 55 µm.
