Pro-Lite introduces M² measurement with Cam Squared

Pro-Lite now supplies the M2 measurement system “CAM SQUARED” which is the latest product from Imagine Optic. It offers precise and reliable analysis of laser beam quality with new records in M squared calculation speed and simplicity over other systems.

CAM SQUARED is Imagine Optic’s innovative answer to the need for laser quality testing and M² measurement in the lab or in production. As easy and quick to set up as a beam profiler, CAM SQUARED gives access to the M squared factor in seconds instead of minutes!

The standard ISO 11146 requires intensity distribution in at least 10 observation planes from which is computed the M squared factor. They are usually acquired using a camera moved along the optical axis. Imagine Optic proposes an innovative approach allowing the acquisition of the complete dataset needed in only one shot.

Best for: Easy & Quick laser quality testing

  • No need for translation stages
  • No need for alignment
  • No need for focusing optics that can compromise real M2 value

Key Features

CAM SQUARED performs multiple measurements:

  • M2
  • Divergence
  • Focus diameter
  • Waist position
  • Rayleigh length
  • Thermal effects
  • Astigmatism
  • Follow the reconstruction of the M2 factor from at least 10 observation planes as recommended in the Standard ISO10116.
