MKS Announces Ophir® Compact InGaAs Camera-Based Beam Profiling Systems for Eye-Safe Military, Telecom, and Medical Laser Applications

Andover, MA – May 29, 2019 – MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir® SP1201 and SP1203, compact, InGaAs camera-based beam profiling systems for realtime viewing and measuring of the optical performance of laser beams. Designed for high sensitivity imaging, the SP1201 features a QVGA resolution InGaAs camera and the SP1203 features a high-resolution VGA InGaAs camera; both also include BeamGage® Professional beam profiling software. The cameras accurately capture and analyze wavelengths from 900nm - 1700nm. They feature a compact design, small pixel pitch (15μm – 30 μm), high frame rates in excess of 60 frames per second, excellent signal-to-noise ratio, and a high-speed GigE (Gigabit Ethernet) interface. They are ideal for measuring CW and pulsed laser profiles in eye-safe military, telecom, and medical laser and LED applications, as well as for co-alignment of laser sources.
