Paper Abstract

Laser products for medical or industrial use have to be evaluated both for their performances (output power/energy power/energy density, bean characteristics, etc.,) and from laser safety point of view. This paper presents an integrated setup for characterization of the laser systems, by connecting, through a dedicated software, stand alone measurement devices. In our set-up two Spiricon laser beam analyzers: LBA 100 and LBA 300-PC as well as an Orphir LaserStar power/energy meter work under a PC control. Some of the software involved was developed by using the LabVIEW 5.0 graphically programming environment, and allows the user to remotely control the measurement process by virtual instruments.
