Where to Buy Beam Profilers

Beam profilers (beam analyzers, mode profilers) are diagnostic devices which can measure the whole optical intensity profile of a laser beam, including the detailed shape.

Check List for Beam Profilers

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • Is it a beam profiler based on a camera, or a device with a scanning aperture (moving slit or knife, for example)? Or is it possibly a wavefront sensor, which can also detect the optical phase profile?
  • In what range of optical powers can the profiler work? Will you have to manually mount a suitable optical attenuator? Will you possibly need to buy an additional attenuator? (Note that high-quality attenuators are required, which do not spoil the beam profile.)
  • In which wavelength range can it be used?
  • How large can the beam profile be, and what is the spatial resolution? (More pixels allow you to work in a wider range of beam sizes.)
  • Can the device work with laser pulses?
  • Is it a standalone device, having an own display (how large?), or is it used in connection with a PC or notebook, or possibly with a tablet?
  • Can it easily be mounted and aligned to the beam? Or will you have to align the beam itself? How much space does it require on the optical table?
  • Can it measure quantities like the beam radius in x and y direction, based on the 1/e2 criterion and/or the second moment (D4σ method)? Can a constant background be subtracted?
  • Can it measure the whole beam caustic and get the beam divergence, beam parameter product and M2 factor from the data?
  • Can it measure the beam jitter (random movement of centroid or peak position)?
