Laser Profiling and Tracking with SWIR Cameras
SWIR lasers designed for industrial, medical, research, and military applications often need an accurate assessment of the power distribution across the entire beam waist. To align with this application a SWIR sensor is needed with properties that include: wide dynamic range, good linear response, resistance to laser damage, and a mitigation of optical fringing effects.
We have SWIR cameras in our product family aligned with SWIR laser beam profiling. Suggest cameras for laser profiling 320V-ST, 640V-ST, 640M-ST, and 640G-STE. You can order all these cameras without a sensor window or with an AR coated sensor window at no extra charge.
Our SWIR cameras have the fastest gating speeds available at 100 nsec. and ultra high timing precision to track and image a laser pulse. See the video to the right for a full explanation of how our SWIR cameras enable laser tracking including lasers that do not have an available trigger. Suggested cameras for laser tracking include 640V-STP, 640M-STP, and 640G-STE.
