Ophir-Spiricon Introduces Pyrocam IIIHR, OEM Version of Pyroelectric Laser Beam Profiling Camera for 2D/3D Viewing of DUV, Far-IR, THz Sources

February 11, 2015 - North Logan, UT – Ophir Photonics, global leader in precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation company, today announced the newest member of the Pyrocam™ family of pyroelectric laser beam profiling cameras at Photonics West, the Pyrocam™ IIIHR. Designed for OEM applications, this camera features a sensitive, 160 x 160 pixel image array that can profile beams up to ½-inch (12.8 mm) without the need for reduction optics. The higher resolution, 80µm pixel pitch means it can analyze beams up to 20% smaller. Both pulsed and CW (continuous wave) lasers can be measured, from 13 to 355 nm and 1.06 to >3000 µm, including CO2 lasers, telecom NIR lasers, and THz sources. “Lasers are increasingly embedded in novel systems where traditional technologies have not been able to keep up with the pace of miniaturization,” said Gary Wagner, General Manager (U.S.), Ophir Photonics. “In semiconductor device fabrication, the physical limits of transistor scaling are challenging the exponential improvements predicted by Moore’s Law. Fiber, CO2, and solid state lasers are now used to drill, cut, and ablate ever thinner chip layers. At the other end of the spectrum, long wavelength terahertz lasers are being applied to chemical analysis, medical imaging, and wireless communications.”
