BEAMCAM Laser Beam Profiler
Get a full picture of your system’s optical performance with the World Star Tech BeamCam. The BeamCam laser beam profiler allows you to see the exact shape and features of your laser beams at a microscopic scale. Designed for repeatable and reliable data acquisition, it is ideal for manufacturing, servicing, and assembly applications.
The windowless 1.3 Megapixel 1/2” sensor captures beam profiles without the fringing effects present with standard image sensors. View intricate beam features as small as 5.2µm. Visualize the beam with real-time ellipse calculations and view cross sections with curve fitting. Key beam width parameters of interest, such as Full Width Half-Maximum (FWHM) and 1/e2 are displayed on the easy-to-use Windows software interface. Track beam centroid stability over time with the beam wander visualization tool featuring customizable test durations and sample rates. Export your results to various image formats or as a PDF report.
Features: HighResolution 5.2μm x 5.2μm pixel / Very Compact
Applications: CW and Pulse Laser Beam Profiling / Precision Beam Pointing Stability Measurement
The cross-section tool is invaluable for measuring the beam width. The width of the beam can be measured in 3 modes: Full-Width-Half-Maximum (FWHM, 50% intensity), 1/e^2 (~13.5% intensity), or Custom where you can manually specify the intensity level at which the beam width is calculated. Gaussian or Top-Hat curve-fitting can be applied to each cross section, the best-fit curve is calculated based on the cross section and the relevant curve equation.
Beam Wandering Tool
The BeamCam can be used to measure beam-wander over time.
The coordinates of the centroid, orientation of the beam, and 2W (major and minor) are displayed in the upper right-hand corner. Below it the beam wander visualizer can be found.
The BEAMCAM is available as a kit with the following components:
- BeamCam Unit
- Removable OD5 Filter
- USB-C cable
- Protective Cap
- USB with Software
