Gentec-EO’s UP-QED laser power detectors honored by Laser Focus World Innovators Awards
Tuesday, September 28, 2021
Quebec City, QC, September 2021 – Gentec-EO announced today that its UP-QED laser power detectors series was awarded the Gold Honoree by 2021 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards
The 2021 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards program was developed to recognize the most innovative solutions in optics and photonics products and systems.
Gentec-EO is proud that its UP-QED series was recognized among the best innovative solutions by an esteemed and experienced panel of judges from the optics and photonics community.
The UP-QED laser power detectors handle extremely high-density lasers. They can even be used as beam dump.
It was designed with an optical absorber that can handle tightly focused, high-energy beams by using a diffusing absorber that redistributes the laser’s power and energy in a larger volume, which makes this laser power detector ideal for intense laser applications.
Its damage thresholds are an order of magnitude higher than all other products on the market, both for power density damage threshold and energy density damage threshold.
The UP-QED series of laser power detectors is used mostly by designers and manufacturers of laser systems with high energy lasers at high repetition rates, for applications such as microfabrication, lithography and semiconductor fabrication.
Their modular design allows you to choose the cooling unit (simple convection, heatsink, forced air or water-cooled) to reach up to 300 W average power.
“On behalf of the Laser Focus World Innovators Awards, I would like to congratulate Gentec-EO on their Gold level honoree status,” said Laser Focus Word Publisher Paul Andrews. “This competitive program allows Laser Focus World to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products impacting the photonics community this year.”
