Laser Beam Analyzer System

The Haas Laser Technologies Laser Beam Analyzer System is a compact modular design.  Employing multiple patented optical design technology that contains “no moving components” and provides “instantaneous” 2-D and 3-D ISO 11146 and ISO 13694 compliant measurements, analysis and monitoring through more than one Rayleigh range of the laser beam being measured. The system includes software, opto-mechanical hardware with a sensor that can cover from the UV to the far infrared.  Attenuation modules other accessories are available for operation between 190nm to 10.6um.  Our technology can cover laser powers from < 1mW to > 30 kilowatts.

In every laser application, the laser beam profile provides valuable information for the most efficient use of the laser. The system can measure and monitor the following:

·         M2, K and BPP values

·         Divergence, Astigmatism, Centroid, Circularity and Rayleigh Length

·         Beam Waist Size, Location, and Focus Shift.

·         ISO Compliant Spatial Profile in 2-D and 3-D

·         Repeatability to the level of the laser’s inherent stability which is often < +/- 1%

·         Logging and Monitoring of all Parameters

By instantaneously monitoring the above values, you have early warning of any problems with the laser and entire beam delivery system. This relates to increased quality and process reliability.

The BWA-CAM® is a patented (USPTO 8,237,922; 8,427,633; 8,619.247; 8,711,343; 8,848,177; 8,848,178; 8,848,179; 10,708,537; 10,942,275+ additional pending) instrument that measures the focal beam waist of a laser beam without moving parts.  This is the only beam analysis system on the market that can provide realtime, ISO compliant parameters and measure thermal lensing of high power laser systems. 


The BWA-PROTM software is designed to be easy-to-navigate and based on the international standards ISO 11146 and ISO 13694 which relate to lasers and laser related equipment and laser beam spatial metrics. The ISO standards are generic in nature allowing for several different laboratory setups and testing techniques. The BWA-PROTM  software uses full image based second moment and knife edge to determine quick and reliable ISO beam parameters. Calculated results can be viewed in tabular form as well as logged to view changes over time. A sophisticated, yet easy to use, report generator produces a variety of QC and summary reports in PDF formats for publication or printing. The reports include visualization windows, X and Y axis plots, 3D view of laser beam and database reports.


The BWA-Configurations include the vast selection of standard and customized Laser Beam Delivery Components offered by Haas Laser Technologies. These components allow an almost unlimited number of integrated configurations to suit your specific needs. Some standard configurations can be viewed in the BWA Configuration Diagram below.
