Ophir-Spiricon, Logan, Utah, has announced that BeamGage, the company's next generation laser beam analysis software, now supports the XEVA InGaAs NIR camera for demanding applications. XEVA delivers high sensitivity in the NIR spectrum (900-1700 nm) at room temperatures, making it useful for both laboratory and industrial applications.
A unique, non-uniformity correction algorithm handles two-point correction plus bad pixel correction to improve image accuracy. The camera's high resolution InGaAs array is formatted for 320 x 256 with 30 µm square pixels.
Based on UltraCal, Ophir-Spiricon's patented baseline correction algorithm, BeamGage provides high accuracy results, guaranteeing the data baseline (zero-point reference) is accurate to 1/8th of a digital count on a pixel-by-pixel basis. BeamGage is available in two versions: standard and professional.
BeamGage Standard features BeamMaker beam simulator, automatic camera control for ease of use, and a comprehensive set of beam analysis algorithms. BeamGage Professional adds such capabilities as partitioning of the camera output for separate analysis of multiple laser beams from sources such as fiber, a .NET interface for full remote control when integrating beam analysis into an automated application, and camera sharing.
