FAQ

Can I use my Ophir-Spiricon CCD camera at wavelengths below 400nm?

Yes. Since we remove the protective glass cover over the CCD camera sensor the full spectrum of the Silicon sensor can be used. This allows the cameras to operate as low as 190nm. But UV wavelengths are very abusive to the CCD sensor and over time the CCD sensor will become less responsive in the area where the UV laser is impinging on the sensor. Steering the beam around the sensor will reveal the low response area and unfortunately the CCD sensor will need to be replaced. In these cases, we recommend using a UV converter of some kind to convert the wavelength to a less abusive wavelength to lengthen out the life time of the CCD sensor.

Do cameras need Calibration?

Since there is no calibration standard to calibrate cameras to, they cannot be calibrated. We do recommend certification according to the information at; http://www.ophiropt.com/laser-measurement-instruments/customer-support/c...

Can the SP620 camera work in a vacuum?

provided by a customer: "We only have a gauge that goes down to 10 mTorr. So it works at least to that level, but the vacuum was probably lower".

How come I can't use the Cameras Region Of Interest (ROI) Feature in my SP503U or SP620U Camera?

The initial release of the SP503U and SP620U cameras did not have the ROI feature enabled. Those cameras that do not have the ROI feature enabled will need to be returned for upgrading both hardware and firmware, and the latest version of software will need to be installed, which is available at;

Measuring Astigmatism the Easy Way

Simple NanoScan/BeamScan Measurements ofLaser Diode Beams Produces Astigmatism DataAstigmatism measurements of laser diodes, optical elements, and/or other sources can be made quickly and easily using a NanoScan/BeamScan. For example, by simply focusing the beam from a laser diode onto the profiler and measuring the distance between primary and secondary foci, an indication of source astigmatism is readily obtained. However, since this distance is on the order of 10 microns (μm), longitudinal magnification can be used to accommodate this measurement and reduce potential errors. This method Read more...
