These liquid cooled gold spheres are designed for
high power laser applications in the near to mid
infrared (NIR and MIR). They provide exceptional
power handling capability.

High power measurements are often performed
using thermopile detectors. Thermopiles however,
have the disadvantage of reacting very slowly -
typical rise times lead to measurement periods
of 1 second at best. The combination of an
integrating sphere and a photodiode based
power meter opens the possibility of measuring
high power fluctuations on a µs time scale. This
can be useful for setting up and debugging high
power CW lasers.


CHARACTERISTICS

High power handling: up to 5kW (CW)

High power density: 5kW/cm²

Compatibility: OPM150 or OPM500 power meters
via fibre coupling

These spheres may be combined with our OPM150 or OPM500 series of power meters via fibre coupling. Just plug it in to your USB port and start measuring!

Ports: SMA or FC fibre

Number of ports: 2 or 4
