Simplified kilogram traceability for photon momentum radiometers

October 1, 2020
Kyle A. Rogers, Paul A. Williams, Gordon A. Shaw, John H. Lehman
High power laser applications in areas such as laser processing of materials can require an accurately measured laser power. Radiation pressure-based laser power measurement has been proven as a practical method for quantifying these high-power levels in

HALO - High Amplification Laser-pressure Optic

June 21, 2020
Alexandra B. Artusio-Glimpse, Kyle A. Rogers, Paul A. Williams, John H. Lehman
Efforts are underway at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to drastically reduce the uncertainty of laser power measurements using radiation pressure. The High Amplification Laser-pressure Optic (HALO) system is a cornerstone of this effort

Inline Laser Power Measurement by Photon Momentum

February 6, 2019
John H. Lehman, Paul A. Williams, Daniel W. Rahn, Kyle A. Rogers
We present a measurement scheme and instrumentation for quantifying laser power by means of photon momentum. The optical design is optimized such that the incoming laser beam is minimally perturbed and is available for other purposes along the incoming

Radiation-Pressure Enabled Traceable Laser Sources at High CW Powers

January 4, 2019
Paul A. Williams, Alexandra B. Artusio-Glimpse, Joshua A. Hadler, Daniel King, Ivan Ryger, Tam Vo, John H. Lehman, Kyle A. Rogers
Radiation pressure has recently been shown to have practical application for multi-kilowatt CW laser power measurement. One key advantage lies in its ability to measure without absorbing the laser beam. This enables a new measurement paradigm where laser

Mechanical characterization of planar springs for compact radiation pressure power meters

September 7, 2018
Alexandra B. Artusio-Glimpse, Ivan Ryger, Paul A. Williams, Kyle A. Rogers, Daniel W. Rahn, Andrew J. Walowitz, John H. Lehman
Counter to conventional methods of measuring laser optical power, radiation pressure-based power meters operate by reflection rather than absorption. This provides an opportunity for in situ, non-destructive total beam power measurement. Compact radiation

Micromachined force balance for optical power measurement by radiation pressure sensing

August 6, 2018
Ivan Ryger, Alexandra B. Artusio-Glimpse, Paul A. Williams, Nathan A. Tomlin, Michelle S. Stephens, Matthew T. Spidell, Kyle A. Rogers, John H. Lehman
We introduce a micromachined force scale for laser power measurement by means of radiation pressure sensing. With this technique, the measured laser light is not absorbed and can be utilized while being measured. We employ silicon micromachining technology

Portable high-accuracy non-absorbing laser power measurement at kilowatt levels by means of radiation pressure

February 16, 2016
Paul A. Williams, Joshua A. Hadler, Frank C. Maring, Robert Lee, Kyle A. Rogers, Brian J. Simonds, Matthew T. Spidell, Ari D. Feldman, John H. Lehman
We describe a unique optical power meter which measures the radiation pressure to accurately determine a laser’s optical power output. This approach traces its calibration of the optical Watt to the kilogram. Our power meter is designed for high-accuracy
