Laser Beam Profiling Software supports custom computations.

Press Release Summary:

Based on UltraCal™ baseline correction algorithm, BeamGage® performs data acquisition/analysis of laser beam parameters, such as size, shape, uniformity, and divergence. Custom Computations expand image processing capabilities, allowing user to import custom algorithms created in C#/.NET. Once imported, user can apply more than 55 measurement and statistical analysis functions including off-axis correction of distorted beam images; trend charting; power/energy calibration; and pass/fail testing.

Original Press Release:

Ophir Photonics Extends Image Processing Capabilities of Beamgage® Laser Beam Profiling Software with Custom Computations

LASER World of Photonics: Hall B1, Booth 560

Munich, Germany - Ophir Photonics, global leader in precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation brand, today announced the newest version of BeamGage® at LASER World of Photonics.

BeamGage is a state-of-the-art beam profiling system that performs rigorous data acquisition and analysis of laser beam parameters, such as beam size, shape, uniformity, divergence, mode content, and expected power distribution. The new version adds Custom Computations to expand the software's image processing capabilities, allowing laser manufacturers and researchers to easily import their own custom algorithms created in C#/.NET.

Once imported, users can apply BeamGage's more than 55 advanced measurement and statistical analysis functions including fast, off-axis correction of distorted beam images; trend charting; data logging; power/energy calibration; and pass/fail production testing.

Based on the patented UltraCal™ baseline correction algorithm, BeamGage includes all the formulas and calculations needed to make accurate, ISO approved laser beam measurements. The Custom Calculations function expands the software's functionality to an even wider array of applications, from fiber optic signal analysis to production parts inspection to military targeting systems. BeamGage supports 2D and 3D viewing of real time results, NIST traceable power measurements, and a wide variety of CCD cameras, including the 11 megapixel, 35mm format USB L11059 Large Format Beam Profiling Camera.

BeamGage supports both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows® Windows 7.

It is available in three versions:

-  BeamGage Standard features BeamMaker® beam simulator, automatic camera control, and a comprehensive set of analysis algorithms.

-  BeamGage Professional adds partitioning of the camera output for separate analysis of multiple laser beams from sources such as fiber, a .NET interface for full remote control when integrating beam analysis into an automated application, and camera sharing.

-  BeamGage Enterprise includes support for high-speed, networked cameras, including GigE, Gigabit Ethernet.

The software provides native language support for English, Japanese, and Chinese. It is also compatible with the German Windows Windows 7 environment.
