Webinar Beam Attenuation: Principles of Laser Beam Profiling

One of the more underappreciated aspects of laser beam profiling is correctly attenuating the beam for accurate and reliable measurements. Dr. Derrick Peterman details the various beam attenuation techniques to reduce the beam power down to a measureable level without distorting the beam and when to use each. He also discusses methods to calculate the required beam attenuation level for effective beam profilers. The goal is to help take the guess work out of beam attenuation and ensure the good data is being captured by the beam profiling systems.
