Matthew Dale explores some of the latest technology for manipulating and measuring the beam, including a multi-spot optical module for laser brazing and a contactless beam analysis device

Ophir

Ophir will display its BeamSquared device, an M2 laser beam propagation system that measures the quality of the beam to optimise performance. A compact, portable device, it provides automated measurements of the propagation characteristics of CW and pulsed lasers in less than one minute.

Users can run the system in automated mode from UV to NIR, and telecom wavelengths, and in manual mode for terahertz and CO2 laser beams. BeamSquared is designed for continuous use applications, from scientific research to rapid prototyping to fabrication and machining.

BeamWatch

Ophir Photonics has announced the newest version of BeamWatch, a non-contact beam monitoring system for high power YAG, fibre, and diode lasers

BeamWatch 2.0

Ophir Photonics Group, global leader in precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation company, has released a new version of BeamWatch, a non-contact beam monitoring system for high power lasers

Fan-cooled laser sensors

Ophir Photonics has released a line of high-power fan-cooled laser sensors: FL1100A-BB-65, FL600A-BB-65, and FL600A-LP1-65. The sensors are compact devices that can measure very high laser power levels from 600mW to 1,100W and energy from 250mJ to 600J with no need for water cooling. The sensors feature a large, 65mm aperture.
