Paper Abstract

LabVIEW is a consistent development and execution environment that provides a method to implement various test and measurements' systems containing stand alone laboratory instruments. This paper describes a virtual instrument created in LabVIEW that facilitates the control of a dual channel laser power/energy meter through a computer serial port, for accurate laser power/energy data logging and handling. The program has a modularity structure and could be easily used in conjunction with the device in any application involving laboratory laser power/energy measurements. The program was tested with very good results for the characterization of different types of lasers.
