Data File Collection and Analysis

Universal Laser Power & Energy Meter 11M-LINK. This new PC-Based monitor is compatible with ALL types of detectors - including thermopiles, pyroelectrics and photo detectors - for both power and energy measurements. The device is available as a single channel unit that directly interfaces with a computer using a USB2.0 connection. The LabView software is included and comes with all the necessary features. The 11M-LINK also presents a unique digital technique of suppressing the noise, thereby extending the measurement range all the way down to the fJ level.

What makes the 11M-LINK so universal is its compatibility with every detector type and model we make, and our smart software that recognizes the type of detector attached, and configures itself accordingly. Some of the basic software features include: Live Digital Reading, Full Statistics, Strip Chart, Histogram, Analog Tuning, Data Logging.
If you need to measure low power levels, from pW to mW, then we recommend our 11PD100-Si detectors. In the software screen shown on the left, we have taken a data set working in the "STATS" display mode. We have set the batch size to 100 data points in the manual reset mode. You can see the live power (138 nW) and full complement of statistics: mean, max, min, RMS and PTP stability. In the bottom left hand corner you will note that a wavelength of 300 nm is displayed. This is where you will enter the wavelength of your laser and engage the wavelength correction factor.
You can select any of our Thermal Detectors to measure your laser power from a few μW up to 30 kW. We used one of our most sensitive thermopile detectors, model 11XLP12-3S-H2, to generate the software screen shown on the left. We have selected the "SCOPE" mode, where you can view the live power reading (0.404 W), a bar graph and a strip chart while monitoring the power. This high level screen also provides access to range, trigger, auto scale, and many other monitor functions.
You can select one of our Pyroelectric Detectors of the 11QE Series for energy measurements. We are looking at the "HISTOGRAM" screen, where you can continue to view the live measurement and a histogram that shows the energy distribution of your data set, along with a best-fit Gaussian curve. Note that you still have access to the instrument controls, like range, trigger, wavelength, etc.
Take advantage of our proprietary pulse averaging, noise reduction techniques available with 11M-LINK. In the example shown at the right, we have captured a data set while running in the "AVERAGING" mode. The bars represent minimum (white) and maximum (blue) energy values. The strip chart is based on the average energy value. You get to select the number of "BINS" represented here. "Pulse Averaging" is available in the Statistics screen.

Compatible with all 11UP, 11XLP12 laser power detectors, 11PH photo detectors and 11QE laser energy detectors.
