A Leader’s tip: This is how Ophir Spiricon determines its products’ dynamic range

I guess the first question that comes to mind while reading this week’s blog title would be – “What’s dynamic range anyway?” or “Why is it so important to state it right?”
By the end of this post you’ll be fully exposed to the importance of stating your dynamic range right…So, stay tuned!

Assuring Correct Metallurgy in Direct Laser Melting

Additive manufacturing has restructured prototyping, development, and advanced design of mechanical components. Direct Metal Laser Melting, also known as Selective Laser Sintering or 3D Metal Printing, is quickly becoming the standard for designs that cannot be fabricated with traditional metal removal techniques. To create consistent, strong structures using laser-based additive manufacturing processes that meet flyable DOD standards or FDA requirements, the metallurgy must be consistent. In addition, a laser beam of known dimension, power density, and focal spot location is required.

Laser Beam Optics Calculators

A laser is a complicated animal.

Whether you’re a lab researcher or an industrial worker, there are several parameters you might need to calculate, such as power density or ideal focus spot size.
We’ve recently added a few calculators to our website. I hope these calculators make your work just a little bit easier.
We have five laser optics calculators (so far):

Can You Really Measure Laser Beam Quality (M Squared) in Real Time?

M-Squared is arguably the single most important factor when determining the potential efficiency of your laser.

However, it can be a pain to measure.  Since the beam quality can be calculated only by taking several measurements along the laser beam caustic, you will typically need to move either the camera or laser source along its axis to get snapshots at different locations.

Here are two approaches you can use that actually DON’T move the camera or the laser:

Measuring Really Small Laser Beams (< 10 microns)

Profiling small laser beams and measuring the beam size (or mode field diameter) can be a serious challenge. But it’s critical to measure, especially in such applications as fiber optic coupling efficiency, defect scanning, optical design and optical fabrication process control.
