Peak power vs. Average Power – What is it, and how do I measure it?
A pulsed laser could have an average power of, say, 1 Watt, yet a peak power of 1 Megawatt – so when specifying it’s rather important to understand the difference! In this video you will learn what exactly these 2 concepts mean. You’ll also learn how to measure Peak Power, which can sometimes be tricky.
