By Derrick Peterman

Lasers are increasingly deployed in manufacturing applications, being pushed to higher and higher output powers and smaller and smaller beam sizes to work faster and with higher precision. Determining the beam profile at the beam focus of these lasers is critical to verify and improve manufacturing product quality. However, there are enormous challenges that must be overcome to capture the beam profiling data. This white paper discusses best practices for analyzing small, high power beams at focus for manufacturing applications. Download the full paper for more information.
