Video: Laser Parameters for Choosing a Sensor – The pitfall of worst case combinations

Have you fallen into the Worst Case Combination Trap?

Let’s say your laser spec gives a range of values for various parameters. Power from X to Y, beam size from this to that…etc.
Unless the “worst case” numbers for all of the laser parameters will really happen together at once, looking for a sensor that could handle that can lead you to some serious overkill.

Why does measuring your laser beam help you maintain quality processes?

Much like a light ball that degrades over time, a laser beam at the work surface has to be maintained and preserved in order to keep it’s high & precise performance.

Why does measuring your laser beam help you maintain quality processes?

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.
