QED attenuators

The QED attenuators increase the maximum energy, energy density, average power and average power density that the QE series detectors can handle. They are engineered to typically transmit 30-50% (at 1064 nm) of the incident radiation to the detector in a near Lambertian pattern (very wide diffusion pattern). Their slide-in casing make them easy to install and remove and they are held securely in place with the use of simple set screws. Since they become part of the detector, it is important to understand how they will affect the calibration.

Depending on how you plan to use a QE detector and QED attenuator, different purchasing and calibration options are available.

QE detector with QED attenuator included

Detector name contains “-QED”
Ex: QE25LP-S-MB-QED-D0

The detector and its attenuator are calibrated as a single product.

CALIBRATED AS A PAIR

This product is calibrated with the QED attenuator in place. You may remove the attenuator, but your measurements will not be calibrated with this configuration.

QE detector and QED attenuator purchased separately

Detector name does not contain “-QED”
Ex: QE25LP-S-MB-D0 and QED-25
Three calibration options are available when you purchase the QE detector and the QED attenuator separately.

FULL CALIBRATION

The detector is fully calibrated both with and without attenuator. This configuration comes with a DB15 adaptor.

PARTIAL CALIBRATION

The detector is fully calibrated without attenuator, and is calibrated at a single wavelength with the attenuator.

NO EXTRA CALIBRATION

The QE detector is fully calibrated without attenuator only. You may add the attenuator, but your measurements will not be calibrated with this configuration.
