    Detecting landmines can be a challenging and slow process. Detecting them from a moving vehicle would make the process more speedy, but at the expense of accuracy.

  3. MKS Announces Ophir® Large Aperture Laser Power/Energy Sensor For Pulsed Lasers
    9/12/2019

    MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir® L2000W-PF-120 Laser Power/Energy Sensor, a water-cooled sensor for measuring large pulsed lasers. The thermal sensor measures powers from 1W to 2000W and energies from 6J to 6000J over the spectral range of 0.3µm to 2.2µm. The L2000W-PF-120 features a large 120mm aperture to accommodate high energy densities and short pulses. A fast, 7 sec response time balances the need to measure fast drifts and instabilities with the ability to handle high energy levels.
