Haas Laser Technologies has launched the Beam Waist Analyzer Monitor (BWA-MON). The monitor and software and enables real-time laser beam measurement, analysis and monitoring of low to very high power CW and pulsed lasers.

The design contains no moving components and provides instantaneous measurement and analysis of the laser beam’s spatial profile, circularity, centroid, astigmatism and M-squared values. Monitoring the laser and entire beam delivery optical system leads to reduced scrap.
