Newport Intros Laser Alignment Tuning Kits
Laser alignment tuning kit.
Irvine, CA — Newport Corporation has introduced the LAKIT Series, a new family of laser power alignment tuning kits. Designed for laser tuning and alignment in research setups, the kit includes the new 1917-R laser power meter and a broad selection of optical detectors, making it easier for the researcher to match the laser type. Each kit contains an optical power meter, a detector, and the corresponding mounting assembly to simplify product selection and setup and to reduce costs.

The new tuning kits utilize three types of detectors, silicon (Si), Germanium (Ge), or thermopile. They operate in wavelength ranges from 200nm to 10.6µ, and up to 100 watts average power. The 918D Series is designed for low power lasers (<2 Watt/cm2) and operates in the visible or in the infrared (IR) spectrum. It incorporates an integrated OD3 attenuator to increase the measurement dynamic range. The 818P Series thermopile detectors are an excellent choice for measuring the average power for high power lasers that operate both in continuous-wave and pulsed modes. The broadband flat spectral response ranges from 0.19 to 11µ, with high damage threshold and very high sensitivity to optical power.

For more complex measurement and data acquisition requirements, the company also provides advanced optical power meters and detectors.
