Test and Measurement / Analysis Case Studies and White Papers

  1. Radiometry 101
    7/26/2018

    Radiometry is the science of studying the transport of energy through radiation. In this article, Telops presents the basics of the principal laws of radiometry as seen through light-sensitive instruments.

  2. New Tool Measures 4 Surface Appearance Quality Conditions Simultaneously
    1/18/2018

    If surface appearance quality is critical to your product, learn about a new manufacturing-friendly tool that allows you to establish numerical standards for and measure four conditions of surface quality: gloss, haze, image clarity, and BRDF including Canon’s new parameter “Scattering C20, C60.” 

  3. Achieving Standardized Measurements With BeamWatch AM
    12/1/2017

    The BeamWatch AM is Ophir-Spiricon’s beam monitoring system designed specifically for use in the additive manufacturing industry to provide non-interfering real-time beam measurement at the location of the working plane. 

  4. Laser Beam Diagnostics In GHz Applications
    6/5/2017

    It usually is insufficient to rely on one standard measurement technology when working with applications in exotic optical wavelengths and unusually low average powers. This white paper goes through an example of calculating many laser beam diagnostics within high GHz applications.

  5. What To Expect In A Laser Profiling Demonstration
    6/5/2017

    When asking someone for a laser beam profiling demonstration, it is important to understand what you are asking for and what you should expect. This white paper covers the steps needed to take to set up a demonstration, and what is expected of each party.

  6. Working In The Basement: Measuring Signals Below The Noise Floor With A Lock-In Amplifier
    6/5/2017

    This article presents the advantages of using lock-in amplifiers for measuring signals below the noise floor, how they work, and available devices from Ophir.

  7. Sensor Fusion Enables Comprehensive Analysis Of Laser Processing In Additive Manufacturing
    6/5/2017

    This white paper discusses sensor fusion, a process that merges data from numerous sensors to create a more complete understanding of the laser-enabled process.

  8. Intro To Laser Management: Laser Profiling 101
    1/25/2017

    Traditionally, laser operators only verify a laser’s average power or energy to improve efficiency and, if everything is in order, put their laser back into service. This article discusses steps required to identify and use a camera profiling system (arrayed camera, attenuator, and beam dump) for laser management.
