Thermal Laser Power Sensor has wide dynamic range, low noise.

Press Release Summary:

With 0.8 sec response time and 0.5 mW noise, fan-cooled F50A-BB-18 measures powers from 10 mW to 50 W and energies from 6 mJ to 50 J. This sensor, designed for continuous use, has spectrally flat BB (broadband) coating usable from far UV to far IR, 17.5 mm aperture, and 0.19–20 µm wavelength range. Linearity results in precision readings of power stability over time without any drift, and cable is included for connecting to Ophir smart displays or PC interfaces.

Ophir Photonics Announces New Thermal Laser Power Sensors with Wide Dynamic Range, Low Noise, Fast Response Time

North Logan, UT – Ophir Photonics Group, a Newport Corporation company celebrating 40 years of excellence as the global leader in precision laser and LED measurement equipment, has announced the F50A-BB-18 thermal power/energy laser measurement sensor. Designed for continuous use at higher laser powers, the F50A-BB-18 is a compact, fan-cooled sensor with a wide dynamic range. It measures powers from 10mW to 50W and energies from 6mJ to 50J. The sensor includes a spectrally flat BB (broadband) coating, usable from far UV to far IR.

The F50A-BB-18 laser power/energy sensor is highly linear, providing precision readings of power stability over time with no drift. It has a fast response time of 0.8s and low noise of 0.5mW. The sensor features a 17.5mm aperture and broad wavelength range of 0.19 – 20µm.

The F50A-BB-18 includes a cable for connecting to Ophir's smart displays or PC interfaces, including the StarBright, Nova II, Vega, and Juno. Each display features a "Smart Connector" interface that automatically configures and calibrates the display when plugged into one of the company’s measurements sensors.

Availability
The F50A-BB-18 is available now. OEM pricing is available on request.
