ZAP-IT® Paper Features
Pulse Width Range: 1 ns to 30 ms
Energy Level Range: 5 mJ/cm² to 20 J/cm²
Sensitive over a broad spectrum, from ultraviolet to infrared.
Used to align external accessories, such as beam expanders, lenses, apertures, attenuators, and power measuring equipment, to the laser beam axis.
Now packaged in reclosable poly box for product viewing and easy access.
Establishes a stable, visual database.
To Use ZAP-IT® Paper
Hold the paper in the beam path at the point where the beam imprint is to be recorded. Pulse the laser to produce a permanent visual record, corresponding to the energy distribution within the laser beam. For continuous wave (CW) lasers, use a mechanical chopper or Q-switch to create a short pulse or physically switch the laser on and off rapidly. ... more about using ZAP-IT® Paper

Each sheet includes three View-It® IR Laser Spot Targets, each with different outer diameters and inner diameter beam centering apertures. View-It® IR Laser Spot Targets have a low-tack backing for easy repositioning.
Visualize IR laser beams for perfect alignment of components such as lenses, beam splitters, mode apertures, steering mirrors, and beam analyzers.
Need to align multiple components? The beam passes thru the center hole in the target, facilitating alignment of multiple components.
0.75” OD target with centered .100” Dia. thru aperture reference for 3 mm beam.
1.00” OD target with centered .147” Dia. thru aperture reference for 4 mm beam.
1.50” OD target with centered .260” Dia. thru aperture reference for 37 mm beam.
Use & Specifications
Attach target with OD centered on component, and then steer the laser beam to go thru target’s aperture. When beam is centered and depending on beam diameter, you may see a halo of green around the thru aperture.
Sensitivity range: 800 nm to 1700 nm
Sensitivity threshold: >50 µJ/cm2 (pulsed laser) and >100 µW/cm2 (CW)
Beam color converts to: Green spectrum
Spatial resolution: better than 50 grooves/mm, meaning that features of less than 200 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.)
Caution: Do not keep a high energy or high peak power beam on this product for extended periods to avoid damaging this product.

Left: VW-IRT used to align the beam in a medical laser delivery device. A flexible section of a hand-held, user-directed beam delivery system for medical/surgical lasers is shown. A VW-IRT target is mounted on the output end of the device to align the laser beam, which passes thru 7+ joints each with a steering mirror.
