Come see us at SPIE BiOS and Photonics West 2016!

DataRay will be attending both SPIE BiOS 2016 (booth 8842) and SPIE Photonics West 2016 (booth 2239) in San Francisco.

We will have several product demonstrations set up:

WinCamD-LCM4 beam profiling camera – with an 11.3 x 11.3 mm active area, 4.2 Mpixels, 5.5 x 5.5 µm pixels, optical and electronic triggering of a global shutter, and an update rate to 60+ Hz, the WinCamD-LCM4 series is ideally suited to both CW and pulsed laser beam profiling. The new high resolution CMOS detector means no comet tailing, and the shutter and trigger options simplify pulse capture. This demo will also highlight our software’s newly improved multi-camera capabilities!

BladeCam series cameras – at just 46 x 46 x 11.5 mm, the BladeCam series is the smallest beam profiler on the market! These cameras are an excellent tool for use with tight optical trains.

Our new line of M2DU stages – DataRay now offers stages with lengths of 50 and 200 mm. This allows us to measure the M² of lasers with longer Rayleigh ranges than ever before. Additionally, we’ve improved our software to provide much better feedback to the user to ensure the highest quality measurements are being made.

BeamMap2 scanning slit beam profiler – the unique, patented, real-time multiple z-plane XYZΘΦ capabilities of the BeamMap2 slit-scan profiler can speed and simplify laser assembly alignment. The BeamMap2 allows real-time M² measurements and focus finding. It will work with wavelengths from deep UV to 2500 nm. Come see this unique, patented device in action.

Finally, we are excited to announce our newest camera: the WinCamD-THz. DataRay, in collaboration with the Swiss FEL Laser Group at the Paul Scherrer Institute, is breaking new ground in the field of affordable THz imaging. With a large active area, high spatial resolution, global shutter, and fast frame rate, the USB 3.0 port-powered WinCamD-THz is ideally suited to multispectral THz laser beam profiling. The slim, compact package with flexible USB 3.0 cable easily inserts into tight optical trains. Unlike bolometric & pyroelectric alternatives, the camera is insensitive to background thermal noise. Switchable software configurations allow the user to move swiftly between multispectral alignment mode and a mode which compensates for the non-linear response to THz beams. Shutter trigger options simplify single or multi-shot pulse capture. The camera is paired with DataRay’s full-featured software which has no license fees, unlimited installations, comprehensive interfacing options and free software updates.

Come talk to our applications engineers at booth 8842 at BiOS and booth 2239 at Photonics West. We will be happy to answer any questions about our products or beam profiling in general. Have a challenging measurement to make? Ask us for help. We have decades of experience in the beam profiling field.
