Artifex Engineering manufactures high quality
polymer integrating spheres for laser and LED
applications.

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 10W (CW);
proportionally higher at lower duty cycle

High power density: 100W/cm²

Compatibility: use with OPM150 or OPM500
power meters via optical fibre or photodiode



Artifex Engineering manufactures high quality polymer integrating spheres for laser and LED applications.

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.

Our polymer integrating spheres are machined from solid material - not coated. These robust devices are perfect for measuring laser power in the visible to NIR.

These spheres are compatible with our OPM150 and OPM500 series of power meters using a fibre patch cable or the photodiode port. Just plug it in to your USB port and start measuring!

Ports: SMA fibre, FC fibre, photodiode

Do you provide custom integrating spheres or modifications of standard spheres?

Yes. As with all of our products, we offer customized units and modifications of existing, standard products. Modifications might be for example the number of ports, the size of ports or the type of photodiode used. Please contact us with your requirements.

  • Reflective material: ultrawhite      polymer
  • Sphere diameter: 100mm
  • Cooling: convection
  • SMA and FC fibre ports, photodiode ports
