Line Laser Profiling & Analysis

DataRay offers a solution for direct measurements and analysis of line lasers up to 200 mm in length and down to 55 microns in thickness. Our line laser profiling system is included in our full-featured, non-licensed software. The software automatically moves our flagship WinCamD-LCM beam profiling camera across the length of the line laser output using one of our M2DU-50 or M2DU-200 linear stages to capture and analyze the entire beam. The DataRay software compensates for any residual sensor tilt to ensure the most accurate measurement.

A full image of the line laser intensity distribution is provided along with a vertical centroid plot, line width plot, intensity plots, and several other useful metrics. The software enables the user to generate annotated PDF reports as well as to export the raw data.

If you are unsure as to which is most suitable for your application, please contact us or use our Product Selector.

Figure 1: Line laser with edges physically blocked to reduce it to 28 mm in length. The diffraction seen near the edges is due to the physical blocking of the line laser; this can be observed with the DataRay software (Figure 3).

Figure 3: The characteristic pattern of edge diffraction from our physically truncated line laser in Figure 1 can be viewed in the Normalized Summed Intensity plot

Figure 4: The plots on top show the Y centroids without Residual Sensor Tilt Compensation for a sensor with <0.5 degrees tilt. The plots on the bottom show the Y centroids with Residual Sensor Tilt Compensation.
