Laser Components has introduced Wavepower. It is an easy-to-use tool for the wavelength and output power measurement of laser diodes and laser diode modules. The wavelength and power can be measured simultaneously with a single measurement. The power can be measured up to 100mW for wavelengths between 500nm and 900nm. The data can be easily read on the display or via an RS232 interface. This measuring device is mostly used for the (automatic) adjustment of power levels in laser diodes and laser diode modules, and can help to determine if a faulty diode 'found' its way into a laser diode module. The Wavepower comes as a handheld device with a sensor probe. It is packaged in a quality case and can be operated without a need for a warm-up period.
