Ophir-Spiricon has launched a website to provide quick and easy access to a wide range of technical resources for power/energy measurement, laser beam profiling, and spectrum analysis.
Resources include technical white papers, tutorials, frequently asked questions, and application notes. The site also includes a version of the company's catalogue of products for laser measurement applications, including an interactive Head Finder Application.
The easy-to-navigate catalogue includes detailed specifications and application notes on smart heads and displays; PC interfaces; beam diagnostic software; beam propagation and spectrum analysers; YAG, CO2, and UV laser profilers; pyroelectric array cameras; and USB, FireWire, and framegrabber-based CCD cameras.
The Ophir-Spiricon website features a growing knowledge base of technical information for scientists and engineers. The site includes issues of ePulse: Laser Measurement News, a review of new developments in laser analysis, beam diagnostics, and beam profiling. White papers and tutorials are also available, covering a variety of topics, such as meter calibration and traceability, laser beam profile measurements, M2 (Beam Propagation Ratio), beam width measurement accuracy, and maximising laser accuracy.
The Ophir-Spiricon website catalogue provides details on all of the company's products, including Quasar, a new, wireless Bluetooth interface that broadcasts laser meter data to any PC or laptop within 10 metres, and the PE9-F Pyroelectric Detector, which accurately and repeatedly measures each and every laser pulse at up to 25,000 pulses per second, the fastest in the industry. The site's interactive Head Finder Application that allows users to input laser parameters and receive recommendations on the best heads for measuring the laser's power and energy.
The Customer Support section of the website includes distributor contact information, RMA forms, frequently asked questions, manuals, and software downloads. The Ask an Expert form allows laser users to directly query the engineering team with specific questions.
