Paper Abstract

Accurate measuring the laser power is one of the most important issue to evaluate the performance of high power laser. For the time being, most of the demonstrated technique could be attributed to direct measuring route. Indirect measuring laser power based on light pressure, which has been under intensive investigation, has the advantages such as fast response, real-time measuring and high accuracy, compared with direct measuring route. In this paper, we will review several non-traditional methods based on light pressure to precisely measure the laser power proposed recently. The system setup, measuring principle and scaling methods would be introduced and analyzed in detail. We also compare the benefit and the drawback of these methods and analyze the uncertainties of the measurements.
