What is the advantage of the SP932U camera?
Why SP932U camera is the most suitable for NIR wavelengths beam profiling?
Is your laser's beam profile shaped correctly for your application?
This video teaches the fundamentals of laser beam profiles and discusses the benefits of profiling your laser beam.
Several case studies are presented showing before and after laser beam profiles.
This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to set up a camera-based beam profiling system on an industrial single-pulse laser welding system.
It will also demonstrate for you how to simultaneously analyze the laser's focused spot, measure the laser's energy per pulse, and measure its temporal pulse shape.
BeamMaker helps engineers, technicians, and researchers understand a beam's modal content by subtracting theoretically generated modes from real beam measurement data. Derive a perfect beam profile by specifying the mode, size, width, height, intensity, angle, and noise content - then comparing it to theoretically derived measurements. The end result is knowledge about how much the real beam varies from the desired beam.
Watch the BeamGage Tutuorials, including tips on handling your CCD camera, software install, introduction to the BeamGage user interface, the context-sensitive help system and user manual, customizing your reporting environment, and configuring BeamGage to display specific laser measurements.

The Optical Camera Trigger is an optical sensor that detects pulsed light sources and generates outputs to trigger a camera. The front aperture of the Optical Trigger must be directed at a light source that provides the necessary properties for trigger activation. (e.g. a laser flash lamp, a pick-off source from the main laser beam, or similar).
The individual filters come in three versions, the ND1 filter in the
The LBS-300s beam splitter attachment for C-mount, CS-mount, or Ophir mount cameras allow you to measure laser beams with diameters up to 15mm and powers ranging from 10mW to ~400W(1). 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
When direct imaging in front of the camera, like imaging an image projected onto a defusing surface, like a ground glass plate, it is necessary to reduce the image so that it completely fits onto the CCD chip surface. The 25mm and 50mm CCTV lenses image an object from a given plane in front of the lens onto the CCD while reducing the size.
Near field profiling can also be used with camera profilers to analyze small beams, and involves a microscope objective lens to image the beam onto a camera detector array. This technique expands the measurement range of the camera to include smaller beams, which could not be ordinarily measured due to the pixel size of the detector array. Near
The 4X Beam Reducer is an imaging system that images the plane 30cm in front of the reducer onto the camera CCD sensor while reducing the size 4 times and inverting it. The beam reducer uses the 3 screw on attenuators provided with the camera. Since the intensity of a beam after reduction will be increased by 4x4=16 times.
The UV image converters are fluorescent plates that convert UV radiation that is poorly imaged by silicon cameras into visible light that is then imaged onto the CCD of the camera. These fluorescent plates are specially designed for UV conversion and have a high light output, wide linear dynamic range and high damage threshold.
Beam expanders are designed to work with C-mount threaded cameras that have 4.5mm imager back focal spacing or with CS (12.5mm) back focal spacing. The 4X beam expander is an expanding telescope that images the beam as it looks at 8mm from the end of the expander onto the CCD while enlarging the image 4X.
Microscope objectives are available for expanding the beam even more. There are objectives for 6X, 12X, and 22X expansion. The various expanders allow the use of our 2% and 10% filters as well as the variable attenuator so as to accommodate the camera to a wide range of source intensities.
The Prism Front-Surface Beam Sampler (PFSA) is a C-mount fixture housing a UV-Grade Fused Silica right angle prism, used for sampling the front surface reflection for high power/energy beam-profiling applications. Reflection at nominal incidence of 45°is polarization and wavelength dependent, with 532nm s-polarization reflected at 8.27%, and p
The stackable beam splitters are designed for maximum modularity and shortest beam path. They are compatible with almost all of our cameras having the standard C mount thread and can mount either to other attenuators or to the camera itself.
