M² Factor Measurement System / M² Meter

Laser beam quality and its focusing capability are very important parameters of a laser and are usually characterized by M² factor. To measure the M² factor for a laser, it is calculated based on the difference between the product of the beam diameter and divergence, and the ideal Gaussian beam diffraction limit. The laser beam quality M2 is as below:

M2=(PI/4*LAMDA)*d0*THETA)

Where M2 is the laser beam quality M2, PI is 3.1415927, LAMDA is laser wavelength, d0 is beam diameter, and THETA is divergence angle. 

Part number

STC-M2

Detector material

Si

Wavelength range

400-1100nm

Receiving beam diameter

20um-9mm

Testing output power range

10nW-10W(Depends on the beam diameter)

The system comes with software. After the positions are keyed in the software, the beam diameters, beam divergence angle  and M2 will be calculated and given as shown as follows:
