Measuring Laser Power Below the Noise Floor with a Lock-In Amplifier

Measuring optical signals in the femtowatt (10-15) to nanowatt (10-9) range can be very challenging. Signal levels this low are lost in typical detector noise levels and swamped by background light. The noise floor for photodiode detectors operated with a small bandwidth (~10 Hz) is on the order of 1 picowatt (10-12). Further narrowing of the bandwidth by filtering or averaging will only provide a small additional reduction in the noise level.

Measure Laser Spot Size & Power Density

If you read our article from last week, you’re already well aware that additive manufacturing can be used to create parts that are impossible to manufacture in any other way.

However, the quality and reliability of the additive manufacturing system depends on the spot size and power density of the laser.
