LASER COMPONENTS launches a new series of laser power detectors by Gentec-EO. These devices were specifically designed for high energy, solid-state lasers.
Thanks to a proprietary absorber that diffuses the measured beam and absorbs it in a larger volume, the new UP-QED series features the highest damage thresholds on the market: 100 kW/ cm2 in power density and up to 300 J/cm2 in energy density. All devices are available in two sizes: UP16-QED with a 16 mm Ø aperture for small beams, and UP52-QED with a 52 mm Ø aperture for large beams.
The modular design allows customers to choose the cooling unit (simple convection, heatsink, forced air or water-cooled) to reach up to 300 W average power. There also are various output options: Users may connect the detector to one of Gentec-EO’s displays and PC interfaces with the standard DB15 output, or choose an all-in-one detector with integrated meter for other output choices such as USB, RS-232 or wireless (Bluetooth).
