Laser Power Meter Reaches New Levels of Accuracy and Response Times

Lasermet, world experts in laser safety solutions, have announced the launch of their new ADM-1000 advanced laser power meter.  With market-leading rise times, this advanced instrument offers laser users excellent power-measuring performance combined with the ease of using a hand-held power meter – all at an affordable price.

The specialist design team at Lasermet developed the ADM -1000 in response to customer demand for a laser power meter with better quality and performance - one that is truly responsive, accurate, stable and easy to use.

The result is a convenient hand-held power meter with a response rate that is effectively instantaneous (700ns) and the ability to make consistent, accurate measurements of peak and average power across a wide range of wavelengths and power levels. For pulsed laser users, the ADM-1000 offers the precision to measure and display waveforms up to 400kHz. 
The hand-held Advanced Digital Meter can be used in conjunction with any of the Lasermet detector heads.  It provides clear digital and graphical oscilloscope display modes and a full illuminated numeric keypad for fast, easy control and data entry.

There are a variety of compatible high-performance photodiode and thermal heads to choose from depending on the laser characteristics and type of measurements to be undertaken.  Standard Photodiode heads are available in standard, UV-and IR-enhanced models and are fitted with integrating spheres to eliminate reflections and allow easy alignment and highly accurate measurement.  A Compact Photodiode head is also available for use in confined spaces.

Thermal Heads include Lasermet’s patented speed-up circuitry giving a rise time of 0.1 sec, effectively instantaneous when used for laser tuning.  The problems of drift & thermal interference often associated with thermal heads have been massively reduced through Lasermet’s patented advanced integrated stabilisation circuitry.
This versatile instrument has a wide variety of applications including production calibration, automatic laser stability testing and pulsed laser characterisation.
