BQM-10 / PS

The BQM-10/PS laser beam profiler is a high precision, CCD based beam profiler for use with lasers with wavelengths between 1400 and 1600 nm. Allied with our powerful but intuitive software package, the BQM-10/PS makes quick and accurate characterisation of your lasers a reality.

The high quality 12 bit CCD array gives excellent resolution, and the USB2.0 interface means that the BQM-10/PS is small and can used with a laptop or desktop computer. The user interface is simple and intuitive but with many useful features.
