OPHIR’S 2018 CATALOG IS HERE!

If you have a laser, you need to measure it.

As in every year – Ophir’s 2018 new catalog covers a wide range of laser power and energy sensors, meters and laser beam profiling systems for medical, industrial, defense, and research applications.

The first section of the catalog is devoted to laser power meters, which consist of sensors (detectors) and meters (displays). Ophir online tools will help you choose your sensor or your meter based on your laser parameters and on your own preferences. Using Ophir’s solutions, you can measure wavelengths from 150 nm (deep UV) to 1 mm (THz), and powers from 300 fW to 120 kW. Almost all Ophir sensors work with all our meters.

The second section is devoted to Laser beam profiling an umbrella term that includes measurements of the beam size, spatial distribution (profile), and beam quality (M2), among other things.

So…What’s New?

Lots of things have changed, but I’ll let you in on a few of the new products and applications found only in the 2018 catalog:

Power Meter section:

  • LP2 new sensor coating –  creating a new standard of high power laser measurement, Ophir now offers a new family of laser sensors based on a specially developed absorber called the LP2. In addition to having the highest damage threshold available, LP2 coating has a very high absorption (reduces dangerous back reflection), provides very low dependence on beam angle (allowing the sensors to measure divergent high power lasers) and it is very flat spectrally (giving highest calibration accuracy).
  • Compact Measurement of high laser power (no water cooling) using Ophir’s L40(150)A-LP2/30(150)A-LP2 / Helios – Using the pulsed power method, a high laser power can be measured by a short exposure to the laser power. Learn more about it here (and on our new catalog).
  • Ophir’s IPL new energy sensors can now measure pulse energies as high as 2000 J, and can safely withstand fluencies of up to 400 J/cm2 for pulse widths typical of IPL sources. This is made possible by Ophir’s innovative “LP2” absorber mentioned above, with the highest damage threshold in the industry. Learn more about it here.

 

Beam Profiling section:

  • BeamWatch® AM  – The industry’s first non-contact laser beam monitoring system for additive manufacturing. It is a lightweight, compact system designed for real-time measurement of focal shift & measures key beam size, position, and quality parameters, including focus spot size and beam caustic.
  • Focal Spot Analyzer – Measure your laser beam power distribution and focal spot size of wavelengths from 266 – 1100nm. The average power can be from <1 to 400 Watts and the focal spot can be as small as 25µm.

  • BeamCheck™ – An integrated laser measurement system designed to measure critical laser beam parameters for laser-based additive manufacturing systems

Laser measurement software from Ophir® can now measure laser power from anywhere! – Part 1

We’ve recently talked about 5 great benefits to using Wi-Fi while measuring your laser. It included reasons that had to do with industrial automation environments, avoiding cables and remote laser monitoring.

Now Ophir Sensors can also be monitored remotely over an Ethernet network – the same type of network connection you probably have in your office, allowing connections from distances far in excess of those supported by RS232 or USB.
