Sensors and Accessories measure large and divergent laser sources.

Press Release Summary:

Respectively, 6000W-BB-200x200 and L2000W-BB-120 water-cooled laser power/energy sensors have 200 x 200 mm and 120 mm apertures and measurement capabilities of 100–6,000 W and up to 2,000 W. With 120 mm aperture, L100(500)A-PF-120 laser power/energy sensor measures lasers for ~1 sec exposures at up to 6,000 W or continuously up to 100 W (500 W with heat sink). Scatter Shields 30K-W and 10K-W reduce heating effect of backscatter on surrounding sensor surfaces when measuring 30 and 10 kW lasers.

Ophir Photonics Announces High Power, Large Aperture Laser Measurement Sensors and Very High Power Laser Accessories

North Logan, UT - Ophir Photonics Group, the global leader in precision laser measurement equipment and a Newport Corporation company, today announced three new high power laser sensors and scatter shield accessories designed for measuring large and divergent laser sources, such as diode stacks and arrays. The 6000W-BB-200x200 is a very large aperture (200x200mm), water-cooled laser power/energy sensor able to measure from 100W to 6000W. The L2000W-BB-120 is a large aperture (120mm), water-cooled laser power/energy sensor able to measure up to 2000W. The L100(500)A-PF-120 is a large aperture (120mm) laser power/energy sensor for measuring single shot energy of large beams from high energy, short pulsed lasers. The 30K-W and 10K-W Scatter Shields are designed to reduce the heating effect of backscatter on surrounding sensor surfaces when measuring very high power 10kW and 30kW lasers.

The 6000W-BB-200x200 and L2000W-BB-120 are water-cooled laser sensors for measuring the power and energy of very large, high power laser beams. They have a broad spectral response, 0.19 – 20µm. The L2000W-BB-120 includes a "Smart Connector" interface that operates with the company's StarLite, Nova II, and Vega smart displays, and Juno PC interface. It can also be directly connected to a PC via RS232.

The L100(500)A-PF-120 is designed for high peak power, high energy measurements over a broad spectral range, 0.15 – 20µm. The L100(500)A can measure single shot energy of high peak power, short pulse lasers at up to 3J/cm2. It can also measure high power lasers for short (~1s) exposures at up to 6000W, and can continuously measure up to 100W (500W with heat sink).

Ophir's high power 10K-W and 30K-W Laser Sensors have high absorbance, but 3-4% of the light is still backscattered. This can heat surrounding surfaces of the sensor. The 10K-W and 30K-W Scatter Shields reduce this backscatter by about 70%.


The L2000W-BB-120 Very High Power Water Cooled Thermal Sensors, L100(500)A-PF-120 High Peak Power Thermal Sensor, and 10K-W and 30K-W Scatter Shields are available now. The 6000W-BB-200x200 will be available in two months. OEM pricing is available on request.
