From photons to nuclear fusion: How to measure energy in any laser system?

Does your laser system always produce the exact same energy output?

One may be tempted to assume that lasers always produce energy as per their specifications and that it never changes over time. The reality is often very different.

Many elements such as the optical components and surrounding environment have an impact on the energy your beam delivers. The intrinsic noise of the pulsed laser is also an important factor since it has a large impact on pulse-to-pulse energy stability.

  • If you manufacture medical equipment, you need to ensure patient’s safety and guarantee good operation for your customers.
  • If you integrate LIDAR system you can’t afford to have variation in laser energy from pulse-to-pulse, otherwise, the reflection would be meaningless.
  • If you do nuclear fusion research, you need to monitor all the laser lines that operate the system at different checkpoints in order to produce the desirable results.

In this webinar, you will learn how to measure laser energy accurately. You will also discover the tools that can help you maintain standardized quality and ensure end-users’ safety, therefore ensuring the success of your operations.
