Gentec-EO announces high laser power meter with low back-scattered power

Quebec City, CANADA Gentec-EO, a provider of laser beam measurement instruments, has announced a new laser power meter for multi-kW lasers with the lowest back-scattered power rating in its category. With its TUBE extension to reduce back-reflections and internal cooling system, the HP60A-15KW-GD-TUBE absorbs up to 99% of the laser’s power, and can withstand long-term exposure of up to 15 kW of continuous power.

The HP60A-15KW-GD-TUBE has a golden reflector cone that was specially developed for the high intensities of high-power fiber lasers. By reflecting incident light off the sides of the opening, the cone distributes the intensity over a larger area (which is covered by our proprietary high damage threshold absorber) and increases the damage threshold to 10 kW/cm2 at full power. With such high damage thresholds, you can now measure your laser power without having to expand your beam.

Laser specifications change over time for many reasons and it causes problems accross all industries. Learn about how laser output measurement solves numerous problems in YOUR industry. Download the guide below.


Gentec-EO's high-accuracy laser beam measurement instruments help engineers, scientists and technicians in all sorts of laser applications from the factory to the hospital, laboratory and research center. Learn about our solutions for these measurement types:

By redirecting light inside the detector, the gold cone reduces back-scattered light. A water-cooled tube extension further reduces the back reflections, for a combined effect of letting only 1-2% of the incident radiation diffuse out of the detector opening. This very low reflection rate ensures a safer working environment with high-power lasers.

This detector comes with both a DB15 connector (for use with a Gentec-EO display such as MAESTRO, TUNER or UNO) and a USB2.0 output for direct measurement on a PC. A wireless module is also available for custom order, which allows for remote monitoring of your laser’s power at up to 30 m distance from the detector.

This water-cooled detector is available in both imperial and metric version.
