APPLICATIONS


Our laser power detectors measure in real time and provide you with accurate data. By delivering information about the laser power, the gRAY detectors allow you to monitor and control your laser system. gRAY detectors are used in various applications ranging from industry to academic research. A few of them are listed in the following.

Contact us, if your use case is missing! We are always interested in hearing about new applications!

Industrial-01 In industrial laser systems it is crucial to monitor the laser power to avoid waste production. The results of laser marking, welding, cutting etc. are affected by too high or too low power. Read more about this in our white paper on “Process Stability”.
To allow continuous monitoring, the sensor is typically integrated behind a beam splitter where it measures only part of the beam. The main part of the beam is used for the process.


Medical-01 To ensure the safety of staff and patients during surgery, lasers in medical applications need to stay precisely within their power specifications.

Popular wavelengths for medical lasers are around 3 µm (since water has a high absorption coeffecient at this wavelength) or further in the IR spectrum. Whereas photodetectors are limited in this wavelength range, gRAY sensors are sensitive from UV to IR. This makes gRAY sensors a perfect choice for medical applications.


Source-01 gRAY sensors can be integrated into laser sources to provide a feedback signal for a closed control loop. This is done to have a stable output power, monitor how the laser ages, and to determine changes in the optical path of laser (like contamination of optics).

As much as the specifications of laser sources vary, the applied sensors vary as well. For diode lasers with limited space or QCLs, the small 2×2 mm² sensor is a good choice. Large CO2 lasers, on the other hand, require a housed detector (for power measurements up to 100W).


Power Meter-01 gRAY sensors are used inside power meter. Like all thermopile sensors, they cover the wavelength range from UV to IR.

However, due to their short rise time measurements are faster compared to other thermal power meters available. Further, the high sensitivity allows to measure low powers down to 10 µW. The size of the power meter can be kept small due to the compact design of the detectors.

Read about the product development with one of our partners.


Position-01 An integrated position sensitive device (PSD) allows to measure beam position and average laser power simultaneously. Such a detector can be placed at one or more positions in the beam path to provide feedback on the current beam alignment.

gRAY PSDs make alignment and maintenance easy – even outside of the visible range. For more details read our white paper on “Beam Positioning”.

Disc-gT Comparison-01


voltmeter-01



1. The laser irradiates the sensor surface. The light gets converted into heat when being absorbed by the coating.


2. This heat impact causes a temperature difference between the exposed top surface and the non exposed bottom side.


3. The T-difference produces a voltage based on the Seebeck effect. It is directly proportional to the input power and can be used to calculate the power of laser.
