Use this hand-held View-It® to visualize IR laser beams for alignment with components such as lenses, beam splitters, mode apertures, steering mirrors, and beam analyzers.
Sensitivity threshold: <10 µJ/cm2 (pulsed laser) and <100 µW/cm2 (CW)
Beam color converted to: Green spectrum.
Spatial resolution: better than 20 grooves/mm, meaning that features of less than 50 µm in size can be resolved visually.
Typical applications: IR - GaAs Laser Diodes (800-830 nm), InGaAs Laser Diodes (880, 960-980 nm), Nd:YAG (1064 nm) Er:Glass (1540 nm), telecommunications.
No fading or saturation – consistent output for steady light input (it’s not necessary to constantly move the viewer)
Damage threshold: >10 J/ cm2 for a typical Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, >1 GW/cm2 @1064 nm for 10 ns at 10 PPS 100 MW/cm2 @1064 nm in CW mode
View-It® is repairable: The product is a powder composite molded under high pressure this allows for resurfacing damaged or stained areas by scraping with hard flat edged tool.
