Reduction of the laser power before reaching the camera is often times required to obtain a usable signal, one that is not saturating or damaging the camera. These systems reduce the laser power by first sampling the beam, one or multiple times, and then absorbing the beam with optical density filters.
The LBS-300s beam splitter attachment for C-mount, CS-mount, or Ophir mount cameras allow you to measure laser beams with diametersShow Product >
The LBS-400 beam sampler attachment for Pyrocam cameras allow you to measure UV or IR wavelength laser beams with diameters up to 1 inch (25.4mm) and powers ranging from 10mW to ~500W. The beam sampler is designed so that the preferential polarization selection effect of a single wedge is cancelled out and the resulting beam image is polarization corrected to restore the polarization components of the original beam.Show Product >
In addition to the stackable filters and beam splitters described above, one can purchase the LBS-100 system that is not as compact as the stackable system above but has larger aperture, can be changed without disassembly and has versions for longer wavelengths. The system contains the mounting frame, 1 wedge beam splitter and several attenuators. The exit end of the LBS-100 is standard C mount thread so all our cameras can be mounted to the frame. The wedge angle is 6.5 degrees to insure thatShow Product >
