…profile, and they can be used with both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed lasers. The chief disadvantage of these instruments is that their measurement resolution is limited by pixel size which limits their use in measuring extremely small beams. Pixel size varies by camera technology, as described…
…Biophysics Systems (later Ortho Instruments), Becton Dickinson, and Coulter ignited a virtual "arms race" of multi-parameter instruments through the 1980s. State-of-the-art devices of the period used water-cooled argon or krypton ion lasers because these were the only lasers available that delivered…

…generate pulses (of any type) as short as laser pulses - now below to 10-16 s - or tools to measure absolute frequencies with an accuracy of ~10-15! Industrial manufacturing, microelectronics, and biomedical and instrumentation applications serviced by lasers are incredibly diverse and rely on…
Understanding Laser Beam Parameters Leads to Better System Performance and Can Save Money 5
Nobody knows better than laser designers that lasers have many features beyond output power which need to be
regularly measured, optimized, and controlled during a laser development…
…Laser Power/Energy Measurement Simplifies Embedding Traditional laser power and energy measurement instruments typically comprise a sensor head connected to separate meter electronics. While this approach offers flexibility, it can be difficult for system builders to embed this instrumentation into…
