Femto Easy, ultrafast instrumentation

BeamPro Compact beam profiler

The Femto Easy BeamPro takes advantage of our user-friendly software, and provides thorough analysis and statistics of your laser beam. The BeamPro software uses standard communication protocols. It is therefore easily integrable in most complex environments. Several BeamPro can be controlled from a remote screen through the network. They are suitable for wavelengths from 190 to 1100 nm and beams as large as 12 mm. There are also high resolution models with pixels as small as 1.67 μm for focused beam measurements.

The BeamPro Compact are available in three formats :

  • C-mount : a compact beam profiler with C-mount thread
  • Low profile : a 12.5 mm thick beam profiler
  • µ-BeamPro : a beam profiler with a very tiny format (33 x 29 x 10.5 mm)

Features

  • Compact design
  • User-friendly and powerful software
  • High resolution (up to 24 Mpx)
  • Small pixel size (down to 1.67 µm)
  • Large sensor size, up to 12 mm
  • C-mount or SM1 (adapter included)

1 The minimum beam diameters are specified for a precision of measurement better than 1%. Smaller beam diameter can be measured but the error will progressively increase.

2 Depending on the type of calculation, frame rate may vary.

3 Due to rolling shutter, the actual minimum exposure time to properly capture the whole beam will be limited by the laser beam size (in case of single-shot measurement) or by the laser repetition rate. For single-shot measurement : the larger the beam, the longer the required minimum exposure time. Otherwise, the slower the repetition rate, the longer the required minimum exposure time.

4 Requires the Trigger option.

Options

Option Description
Windowless Removal of the BeamPro sensor window to avoid potential interferences
UV extension Increases the BeamPro wavelength range to the UV region, down to 190 nm
Additional ND filters The default BeamPro configuration includes one ND filter. Additional ones with different specifications can be ordered
Custom version on request BeamPro based on different type of camera (resolution, pixel size, sensor material) can be developed on request
High dynamic range Software mode to increase the dynamic of the BeamPro signal acquisition from 12 to 16 bits. Not compatible with pure single-shot measurement as 2 images are necessary to build one beam profile image
Vacuum compatible versions Possibility to place the BeamPro and perform measurements directly inside a UHV vacuum chamber (not available for all models, please contact us for details)
Trigger Synchronization of the BeamPro detection to an external signal for accurate laser single pulse measurement

Software

Like every Femto Easy product, the BeamPro comes with a powerfull and very user friendly software, especially designed for touch screens, in order to give you the best user experience.
