Spiricon has released a laser beam analyser, LBA-USB, which incorporates a series of USB 2.0 CCD cameras for laser beam profiling. LBA-USB uses only CCD cameras, versus CMOS cameras, to ensure maximum linearity and accuracy of beam measurements. The series incorporates three camera choices, from a low resolution 640 x 480 sensor with 7.4um pixels, to a high resolution 1616 x 1216 sensor with 4.4um pixels. The USB 2.0 interface enables maximum portability of the beam analyser using laptop computers.
