Beam Profiling Cameras

Beam profiling tells you about your laser beam’s spatial characteristics,
intensity, propagation, beam quality, and ultimately how useful it is.
WinCamD Beam Profiler

When selecting a laser beam profiler, there are several basic questions to be answered:

  • Wavelength(s) Do I need a broad wavelength range system or a limited spectrum?
  • Beam Diameter Is my beam small (a few microns) or is it larger, in the mm range?
  • Power/Energy Am I dealing with µW/µJ, mW/mJ, or higher? Do I need attenuation/sampling?
  • Accuracy What measurement accuracy do I need?
  • CW or Pulsed or beam Do I have a CW (continuous) output or a pulsed beam? If pulsed what PRR?

Next, what measurements are needed?

  • Beam Diameter(s)?
  • Beam XY Position, Wander?
  • Beam XYZ Focus Position?
  • Beam Divergence, Pointing?
  • Beam Shape (Gaussian, TopHat, Line Projection)?
  • Beam Quality (e.g. M2 Propagation Parameter, Uniformity)?

The answer to these questions will help narrow the selection of profilers that will best measure your beam.

Camera-based systems offer the broadest use for beam profiling, but lack the highest resolutions, which may be required for very small beams (below 32 µm in size). If you have a low pulse-rate beam, have irregularly (non-Gaussian) shaped beams, or if you’re looking for a general purpose profiler, these are a good choice.

What's New?

We’ve recently refreshed our website, and we hope that you will find the changes to be a big improvement. We’ve worked hard to make it easier to navigate the site, and to find exactly what you need from among our vast and diverse range of products.

Missing e-commerce?

One thing that we’ve not carried over from the previous site at this time is the facility to order online for a select range of our products, which you may have been used to in the past. “Off-the-shelf” items represent a small part of our product range; most often a purchase requires a more in-depth discussion between our sales team and the customer to match the right product to the user’s application. For this reason we have focussed on making it as easy as possible to request a quotation from our sales team.

Please rest assured that we will get back to you with pricing promptly, and will work with you to make sure the products you buy are exactly what you need. Once you’re ready to order, our sales team will work through the process with you, to make it as seamless as possible.

Once you’ve selected all the items you’re interested in, by clicking “Add to Quote” on the product page, just click “View Quote Request List” or the icon in the top navigation bar, check your list, set quantities, complete your details and submit the form. Our sales team will respond by email, in a timely manner.
