Over the years, the quality of laser sources and the systems in which they are integrated have significantly increased. However, the natural degradation of the components that make up these systems causes their performance to change over time. Whether the laser is being used to map images in front of a vehicle, cut or weld metals, or neutralize an enemy drone, consistent laser performance is required to dependably and reliably produce a quality process that protects your assets. Understanding why and how long and short term laser performance changes is key to managing and controlling the process. In this webinar, we will review key laser performance characteristics and how to measure them. We will discuss why and when it is important to understand how these measurements correlate to changes in laser processes. We will also examine three case studies that show how measuring and analyzing laser performance helped laser users troubleshoot common problems that arise during laser processes.
