PRESS RELEASE

PE-C sensors

Ophir Photonics Group has announced two new pyroelectric laser energy sensors.

They are part of Ophir's PE-C line of pyroelectric pulsed sensors­ compact devices, which provide the industry's lowest measurable energy, longest measurable pulse width, and highest accuracy. The new sensors feature an innovative BF coating and diffuser that deliver the highest damage thresholds: up to 6J/cm2 for nanosecond pulses.

The new PE-C laser energy sensors are designed for high power, short pulse YAG laser and harmonic generation applications in a broad range of industries, from cosmetic surgery to fluid dynamics to cutting and welding.

These compact devices provide a user adjustable threshold, preventing false readings in noisy environments. They support repetition rates up to 250Hz and pulse widths up to 20ms.
