See Your Laser Beam Profile As Never Before


The BeamMic series of laser beam analyzer systems are designed for entry level or basic profiling needs.

The beam’s size, shape, uniformity or approximation to the expected power distribution, can make or break an application. Accurate knowledge of these parameters is essential to the accuracy of any laser-based application. As laser applications push the boundaries of laser performance it is becoming more critical to understand the operating criteria.

Signal Conditioning for Enhanced AccuracySpiricon's patented Ultracal enables more accurate beam measurement and display. Ultracal takes a multi- frame average of the baseline offset of each individual pixel to obtain a baseline accurate to approximately 1/8 of a digital count. This baseline offset is subtracted from each frame, pixel by pixel, to obtain a baseline correction accurate to 1/8 digital count. Spiricon's Ultracal method retains numbers less than zero that result from noise when the baseline is subtracted. Retaining fractional and negative numbers in the processed signal can increase the beam width measurement accuracy by up to 10X over conventional baseline subtraction and clip level methods. Spiricon's Ultracal conforms to the best method described in ISO 11146-3:2004
Frame AveragingUp to 256 frames can be averaged for a signal-to-noise ratio, S/N, improvement of up to 16X (Noise is averaged up to 1/256th [8 fractional bits]). Data is processed and stored in a 32bit format
Frame SummingUp to 256 frames can be summed to pull very weak signals out of the noise. Due to the precise nature of Ultracal baseline setting, (i.e., a retention of both positive and negative noise components) summing of frames can be performed without generating a large offset in the baseline
Convolution (Adjacent Pixel Averaging)Choice of 5 convolution algorithms for spatial filtering for both display and calculations. Spatial filtering improves the visual S/N

Trigger, Capture and Synchronization MethodsCapture methods are features related to the application while Synchronization methods relate more to the abilities of the specific camera. NOTE: Frame capture rates are determined by many factors and are not guaranteed for any specific operating configuration.
 Trigger modes
   CW - captures continuously, see Capture Options below
   Trigger-In from laser: Trigger pulses supplied to the camera
   Strobe-Out to laser: Strobe pulses output from the camera
   Video Trigger: Frame captured and displayed only when the camera sees a signal greater than a user set level
 Capture options
   Capture options are redefined and are approached in a different manner than older products. The items listed below
   will allow for all of the previous methods but with more flexibility than ever before
   Results Priority: Results priority will slow the capture rate to be in sync with the computational results and display updates
   Frame Priority: Frame priority will slow results and display updating to insure that frames are collected and stored in the frame buffer as fast as possible (replaces block mode)
   Stop After: Will collect a set number of frames and then stop (replaces Single-Shot mode)
   Periodic: Will collect frame at a programmed periodic rate
   Periodic Burst: Will collect frames in a Burst at programmed periodic rates
 Post processing is still available but is done via a different mechanism and is limited to only data file sources
