New Ophir® Laser Power Sensor Measures High Repetition Rate, Short Pulse Industrial Lasers for Micromachining up to 200W

Andover, MA – Feb 23, 2022 – MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir F150(200)A-CM-16 thermal sensor, a state-of-the-art device for measuring high repetition rate lasers with very short pulses in the nano, pico, and femto second ranges. High repetition rate lasers can induce damage to conventional sensor coatings at lower power densities than is often required by users. The F150(200)A-CM-16 is a compact, calibrated, fan cooled sensor that supports high rep very short pulses lasers with average power up to 200W. Such performance is typically only achieved with a diffuser. The new sensor accomplishes this without a diffuser, thus alleviating the problems related to contamination on the diffuser. The F150(200)A-CM-16 sensor can withstand higher power densities and measure continuously average power up to 150W and intermittently up to 200W. This makes the sensor ideally suited for use in material micro-processing, such as semiconductor applications, PCB drilling, advanced flat panel display production, photovoltaic cells, and medical applications.
