Gentec-EO laser position monitor measures CW and pulsed laser beam position

May 28, 2011
A new QUAD-4Track laser position monitor uses pyroelectric quadrant detectors and responds to radiation from deep-UV to far-IR and terahertz sources.

A new QUAD-4Track laser position monitor uses pyroelectric quadrant detectors and responds to radiation from deep-UV to far-IR and terahertz sources. It converts the four-channel analog output of the detector to a digital x and y position reading. Supplied with LabVIEW software, it is suited for beam position measurement of both CW and pulsed lasers.

PRESS RELEASE

So, what’s new? Our Broadband Pyroelectric QUAD Detectors and our QUAD-4Track Laser Position Monitor!

Pyroelectric detectors are thermal devices which respond to any and all sources of electromagnetic radiation, from Deep-UV to Far-IR and even THz (millimeter) sources. And what’s great is that they don’t suffer from photocurrent saturation.

QUAD-4Track is a smart, digital Laser Position Monitor that captures the analog output from our QUAD probes and does the number crunching for you to give you the X and Y position of your laser beam.

Here are some of the many things you can do with them:

  • Measure beam position or translation of your pulsed laser in real time, up to 1000 pps using our QUAD Position Sensing Energy Detectors
  • Track the beam wander of your 100 kHz DPSS pulse laser using our QUAD Position Sensing Power Detectors
  • Measure beam steering of your CO2 laser in micro radians
  • Locate and align your THz source and mirrors

Our QUAD probes are offered for both Energy and Power measurements, in 2 aperture sizes (9 × 9 and 20 × 20 mm). The QUAD-4Track Laser Position Monitor is supplied with a complete LabView software that literally does the work for you!

For a closer look at these new position sensing products, please review our Application Note # 121D-201930 and/or introduction video on our website at www.gentec-eo.com.
