The ModeCheck collimated CO2 laser beam profiling system accurately captures and analyzes industrial lasers of wavelengths around 10.6µm by sampling a percentage of the beam with a spinning mirror. It features an almost complete passthrough beam measurement technique in a lightweight compact design which makes it ideal for periodic performance measurements of CO2 cutting and welding lasers.

It provides all of the calculations real-time and a customizable under interface with the ease-of-use and flexibility that customers have come to expect.
Where is the detector in the NanoScan?
The detector is mounted behind the slits. This position is not important to the measurements. The measurement plane is the scan plane of the slits, which is nominally 1.1mm from the face of the front cap. Refer to the mechanical drawings specific information on the measurement plane location and the reference plane of the scan head.Close
Why is the silicon NanoScan not recommended for 1064nm beam measurements?
The silicon detector is very transparent to NIR light >1000nm. If it is used for measuring these beams, you will often see a tailing profile, because the signal does not decay fast enough. This will lead to erroneous results. We recommend using the germanium, or if there is enough power, the pyro electric detector for these wavelengths.Close
After setting up the NanoScan profiler and acquiring the beam, the profile is bouncing back and forth.
This is usually caused by the Automatic ROI selection. After acquiring the beam OK, you can then uncheck the Auto ROI in the ROIs menu and the beam should stabilize OK.Close
Won't the NanoScan slit diffract the beam?
Yes, but since the NanoScan measures all the light on the detector as a function of slit position, this does not affect the measurement results.Close
