July 18, 2016 – North Logan, UT – Ophir Photonics Group, a Newport Corporation company celebrating 40 years of excellence as the global leader in precision laser measurement equipment, has announced an update to StarBright, a compact, feature-rich, handheld laser power/energy meter. Displaying measurements from pW to kW’s and pJ to hundreds of Joules, StarBright measures power, single shot energy, repetitive energy, frequency, and beam size with Ophir’s wide range of thermal, pyroelectric, and photodiode laser sensors. It also measures irradiance and dosage with the PD300RM radiometer sensors, and laser beam size and beam position with the BeamTrack power/position/size laser sensors. The newest version of StarBright can be used to measure the instantaneous power of a laser pulse. This is especially useful for measuring lasers in high power applications. StarBright can now also be used to measure total energy exposure with a Photodiode sensor, a big plus for photolithography applications.
