Coherent Inc. recently extended the spectral coverage of its LaserCam™-HR laser beam profiling cameras into both the ultraviolet and infrared with the addition of two new models. The LaserCam-HR-UV operates over the 190 to 355 nm spectral range, enabling it to record beam characteristics at the third (355 nm), fourth (266 nm) and fifth (213 nm) harmonics of Nd:YAG lasers, as well as the output of most excimer lasers.
The large size of the high-resolution sensor (2/3 in.) allows many excimer laser beams to be directly measured without beam reducing optics. The LaserCam-HR-UV also features novel, robust sensor technology that delivers long-term stability and an increase in pulse count lifetime over previously available products.
The new LaserCam-HR-InGaAs measures infrared laser beams from 900 to 1700 nm, making it compatible with eye-safe military lasers and telecom sources, as well as the Nd:YAG fundamental. The LaserCam-HR-InGaAs offers both high measurement speed and a large, 14-bit dynamic range. This makes it faster than pyroelectric-based devices and enables visualization of greater beam detail than can be achieved by other competitive cameras that utilize InGaAs sensor technology.
Both new LaserCam-HR models offer the convenience of a single USB 2.0 cable connection; no interface card or other connections are required. The new LaserCam-HRs draw their power through the USB connection, eliminating the need for a separate power supply. These new products also utilize the same powerful BeamView™-USB 2.0 as all other LaserCam-HR models.
