Power and Position Sensors

Manufacturer LaserPoint


Description :

LaserPoint applied for a patent for the first thermal detector that combines power, position and beam diameter in a single and compact laser sensor as far as 1997 ; a second patent for the detection of the same parameters was announced in 2006. As a fall-out of this extensive R&D activity a whole family of high accuracy but simplified sensors was released in 2010. This new family of detectors was aimed for those applications that require accurate beam centering, tracking of beam wander, monitoring of beam drifts and alignment of optical elements, other than beam power. The QA sensors line measures power from 10W f.s. to 6kW f.s.; in addition, the sensor tracks beam position down to 100µm. The small footprint and ease of use allow an immediate integration within any optical setup.
