NanoScan 2s Pyro/9/5
This NanoScan scanning-slit profiling system accurately captures and analyzes wavelengths from 190nm - >100µm with its Pyroelectric detector. It features slit and aperture sizes suitable for most beams, near real-time data capture rates, an optional power measurement feature, and operates in CW or kHz Pulsed modes which makes it ideal for comprehensive analysis of lasers of any wavelength.
- Beam Sizes of 20µm to ~6mm
- Power Levels of ~5mW to ~100W
- USB 2.0 Interface
- NanoScan Standard or Professional software included

Where is the detector in the NanoScan?
The detector is mounted internal to the NanoScan behind the rotating slits. This position is not important to the measurements. The measurement plane is the scan plane of the slits, which is nominally 0.74mm +/-0.025 mm from the Reference Surface on the front of the NanoScan. Please refer to the mechanical drawings in Appendix B of the NanoScan Operational Manual.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.
Won't the NanoScan slit diffract the beam?
My NanoScan system is giving me an error that says” The selected speed could not be set within 0.01%!” What does this mean?
This means that the motor is not able to set the rotation speed to within 0.01% precision. This typically means that the motor is wearing out, or that something is causing the motor to not be able to rotate at a constant speed. This typically requires that the system come back to the factory for inspection and repair.
This could also mean that you are running the wrong software. If the NanoScan does not have a Mini USB connection on the head, it should not be run on NanoScan 2.4.X software. It should be run on version 2.1 SR1 software.Close
Can multiple NanoScans be run from the same PC, or can you connect multiple NanoScans and select the one you want to run?
This tutorial is presented by Ophir-Spiricon sales engineers - the experts in the field of measuring lasers and in helping you get the most out of your laser beam.
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.
See for yourself how easy it is to use a NanoScan to measure your laser beam. This 3-minute video shows the NanoScan profiling both a HeNe and a high power laser.
