Laser Power and Energy Calibrations

The Quantum Electronics and Photonics Division currently provides calibration services for meters used with the lasers, wavelengths, and power ranges shown in the following table. Other laser wavelengths, power, and energy levels are available upon request as Special Tests. Please contact Matthew Spidell for additional information. For scheduling contact John Lomax and see the services and fees on the Optical Radiation Measurements webpage.
