PC Software & Drivers

This section describes various ways to interface the Ophir meter to your PC as well as the software options available. Check out the datasheet for more details.


The StarLab application together with an Ophir meter turns your PC or laptop into a full-fledged laser power/energy meter. Supports most Ophir laser power/energy sensors. Up to 8 sensors can be displayed at once on one PC. By using the Ophir COM Object, you can control the device from your own application. Supports the Ariel, Centauri, StarBright, StarLite, Juno, Juno+, Nova II, Vega, Pulsar-1/2/4, Quasar, EA-1 and Ariel devices.


Library supplied for a complete measurement interface with most of our USB speaking devices (Centauri, StarBright, StarLite, Juno, Juno+, Nova-II, Pulsar, Vega). Makes use of our new COM object.

StarBright Laser Power/Energy Meter Overview

StarBright is a compact, feature-rich, handheld laser power/energy meter. Displaying measurements from pW to kW’s and pJ to hundreds of Joules, StarBright measures power, single shot energy, repetitive energy, frequency, and beam size with Ophir’s wide range of thermal, pyroelectric, and photodiode laser sensors. It also measures irradiance and dosage with the PD300RM radiometer sensors, and laser beam size and beam position with the BeamTrack power/position/size laser sensors. The newest version of StarBright can be used to measure the instantaneous power of a laser pulse. This is especially useful for measuring lasers in high power applications. StarBright can now also be used to measure total energy exposure with a Photodiode sensor, a big plus for photolithography applications.

StarBright – Full Tutorial

The new Ophir StarBright is the most advanced of Ophir’s family of handheld laser meters. This video walks you through the range of capabilities, and shows you how to use them. This is the FULL video teaching you how to use StarBright.

Firmware Upgrade of StarLite and StarBright

Field upgrade of the firmware for the StarLite and StarBright meters is very simple. In this video, we’ll walk through the process, step by step.

Measuring Kilowatt Laser Beams with 50W Sensors

For measuring high average powers, you may not need to use a high average power, water-cooled, big and heavy sensor. This video shows you three practical solutions to “get away” with using lower power sensors to measure high power beams, using short exposure times.

Introduction to the StarLab Laser Measurement Application

This video gives an overview of the StarLab application and its various functions. Part 1 of a series of video segments teaching you how to use StarLab.

Calibration Factors - Laser Power/Energy Meter

When a power/energy meter is in "Calibrate" mode, various "Factors" are displayed to the user. This video explains the meaning of each of these factors.

Clarifications: Range Selection, Measurement Duration

Sometimes, even experienced users of laser measurement equipment come across some issues that, although basic, need to be clarified. This video reviews 2 such issues: (1) selection of correct range when it's not quite obvious (and what happens if one goes over range), and (2) how long a measurement duration may be.
