Ophir Photonics, provider of precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation brand, has introduced the newest version of the Photon M2-1780, a laser beam profiling system that measures beam quality in real-time.
The M2-1780 automatically measures the M2 beam propagation ratio and all associated ISO 11146 parameters instantaneously, at video rates over 20Hz.
The M2-1780 is a CCD camera-based system that works with CW and pulsed lasers down to single shot rates. The CCD is sensitive to wavelengths from approximately 250nm to 1100nm.
This compact systems automatically measures with NIST-traceable accuracy to better than 2 per cent.
