Press Release Summary:
MaxBlack laser energy probes, J25LP-MB and J45LP-MB, measure laser pulse energy from 200 ÂµJ to 2J at rep rates to 1,000 pps from 0.19 to 11 Âµm. Probes perform at fluency levels up to 265 mJ/cm2 at 1064 nm. Proprietary coating offers significant improvements over large-area, black-painted probes. Probes are more resistant to scratches and laser damage yet maintain features such as flat spectral response and low reflectance.

Coherent-Molectron Introduces MaxBlack(TM) Laser Energy Probes
Santa Clara, Calif., February 14, 2003 - Coherent-Molectron (Portland, OR) introduces the MaxBlack laser energy probes. The MaxBlack energy probes J25LP-MB and J45LP-MB are well suited to measure laser pulse energy from 200 µJ to 2J at rep rates to 1,000 pps for lasers across the spectrum-0.19 µm to 11 µm. MaxBlack probes are designed to perform at fluency levels up to 265 mJ/cm2 at 1064 nm.
According to Burt Mooney, director of sales for Coherent Molectron, "Thanks to our new, proprietary coating technology, the MaxBlack probes offer significant performance improvements over large-area, black-painted probes. They're faster, more sensitive, and more resistant to scratches and laser damage across the spectrum, yet they maintain the desirable features of black paint-including broad, flat spectral response, low reflectance, and good spatial uniformity."
