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.

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.
