Which detector ist best for measuring YAG-lsers at 1064nm?
The choice of detector is affected by several parameters: beam size, power and wavelength. For use at 1064nm there are two choices available: OPM150UVS and OPM150G10 (or G5).
The G10 version is more expensive than the UVS version. However, it is more accurate since the responsivity of the UVS detector is temperature dependant at wavelengths beyond 900nm – which includes 1064nm. The user must consider this price-to-performance aspect for the application.
