Warsash Scientific have released the USB L11058 large format beam profiling camera from Ophir-Spiricon. The USB L11058 camera is designed for measuring large ultraviolet laser beams. Its high resolution and 4008 x 2672 pixel format allow profiling of beams up to 24 x 36mm without requiring reduction optics.
Frame rates of up to 3.1 frames per second at full resolution increase throughput and productivity. This makes the USB L11058 camera suitable for use in applications that require a large field-of-view, fast frame rates, low noise, and high responsivity, such as high power lasers in semiconductor fabrication.
The USB L11058 large format beam profiling camera accurately measures CW (continuous wave) laser beams over a wide spectral range, from 190nm to 1100nm. The USB L11058 camera also has a wide dynamic range of 59 dB. The camera features a global shutter, which allows simultaneous integration of the entire pixel array. Its short exposure time is suitable for capturing objects in high speed motion. An integrated USB 2.0 digital interface allows users to transfer measurement data to laptops and desktop computers.
The USB L11058 camera allows large laser applications, which were previously unable to capture and analyse beams with diameters larger than a few millimetres, to accurately measure beam profiles and widths, understand power density and cavity alignment, and improve the quality of the finished products.
