Choosing The Optimal FluxGage Model For Your Application
To select the Ophir FluxGage model that will best suit your needs, first consider two questions: What size are the luminaires that you plan to measure (what is their light emitting surface size), and what is their expected luminous flux? The answers to these questions will help you find the right solution.  Continue Reading..
Quality Assurance In Additive Production
Whether in research or in production, the laser parameters must be checked regularly. For this purpose, Fraunhofer Research Institution for Additive Manufacturing Technologies IAPT generally turns to the Ophir BeamWatch AM, which measures the laser beam without contact, is compact enough to be used inside the production chamber, and delivers measurement results quickly. This case study covers the full story.  Continue Reading..
Stability Of Silicon Photodiodes For Laser Emission Measurements
Laser emission safety regulations are put in place to necessitate simple instrumentation for user monitoring and regulatory purposes. Instruments must be accurately calibrated and maintain their calibrations over long periods and must be achieved within the optical transducer. This white paper’s objective is to examine the suitability of silicon photodiodes as the transducer, and to discuss the calibration accuracy, reproducibility, and...  Continue Reading..
Are Large Image Sensors A Perfect Fit For Large Field Of View Microscope Applications?
Microscope manufacturers have increased their field of vision on the cameras connected to their microscopes to offer more information to their users. This paper delves into the relationship between resolution, magnification, spectral range, and pixel size of image sensors.  Continue Reading..
ISO Compliance Of Non-Contact, Real-Time Beam Analysis
ISO Compliance Of Non-Contact, Real-Time Beam Analysis
To deliver continuously high product quality, the key parameters of laser beams in production applications must be measured on a regular basis. Ophir has tackled the task and developed a non-contact measurement technology, the BeamWatch, based on the Rayleigh scattering.   Continue Reading..
Radiometry 101
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.  Continue Reading..


The Ophir IS6-D family of 6” integrating spheres (5.3” inside) is for use with divergent (D) beams. These instruments have no detectors, where the detection configuration for IS6-D spheres are done by the user. They can also be used as uniform light sources.

The Ophir PE50U-DIFH-C is a pyroelectric energy meter with a high damage threshold diffuser for concentrated beams. It is designed with a 35 mm aperture and can measure energies from 100 µJ up to 10 J.

OSI Optoelectronics provides standard and custom X-ray detector devices for industrial, security, and medical fields. These proprietary detectors are designed and manufactured in-house with outstanding reliability. They are ideal for any X-ray scanning applications, as well as other medical and security applications.

The Ophir® SP1201 and SP1203 are compact, InGaAs camera-based beam profiling systems designed specifically for real-time viewing and measuring of the optical performance of laser beams. The SP1201 features a QVGA resolution InGaAs camera, and the SP1203 features a high-resolution VGA InGaAs camera, both for high sensitivity imaging.

The Ophir® SP920 USB 3.0 Silicon CCD High Resolution Beam Profiling Camera is designed to accurately capture and analyze wavelengths from 190 nm – 1100 nm, with enhanced sensitivity at 1070 nm. The camera features a wide dynamic range, excellent signal to noise ratio, USB 3.0 interface, and BeamGage® beam analysis software. It is ideal for measuring CW and pulsed laser profiles in such high-speed applications as medical imaging, microscopy, or micromachining.

Measurements include total luminous flux (down to 20 lm), spectrum and color parameters (CCT, CRI, TM-30-15), and flicker for a variety of applications, including automotive, traffic lighting, life sciences, and medical.

Photron offers the new FASTCAM MH6 camera system perfectly designed for space- and weight-constrained environments, including in on-board vehicle safety testing and military testing applications. The MH6 camera head provides outstanding image quality with 1080 HD resolution at 1,000 frame per second and light sensitivity of ISO 5,000 color and ISO 12,500 monochrome.

Telops’ TESTD Series offers nondestructive testing solutions for the evaluation of materials, components, and assemblies. These non-contact IR methods are based on active thermography to detect damage from corrosion, delamination, decay, voids, inclusions, and other irregularities.


  • Woodward Testimonial

    The Woodward company is one of the oldest U.S. companies that started out providing water wheel governors and has grown to delivering control systems for reciprocating engines, gas steam engines, aircraft turbines, and aircraft actuation flight control. As these systems become more advanced, they must be regulated at higher standards. Woodward uses ZYGO’s optical metrology technologies to advance their materials inspection.
