Pulsed Lasers and External Trigger Mode

Posted by Loren Jones on 12/2/2016 to General

In our previous blog post, we provided an overview of pulsed lasers and how the exposure time of a camera must synchronize with a laser pulse to provide an accurate measurement. We talked about how Auto-Trigger Mode can be used to measure pulsed lasers with no formal synchronization by setting an appropriate exposure time and rejecting partial pulse captures. This blog post will now talk about how an external trigger can be used to formally synchronize the exposure time to the pulse width. This External Trigger mode provides more versatile and precise measurements of pulsed lasers.
