Laser 2000 provides a wide range of different beam viewing and visualisation devices. Laser alignment can be tricky if the beam is in the infrared or is completely attenuated by Laser safety eyewear. These tools shift the wavelength of the beam and make it easier to see.
For most applications, the cards and wands provide a low cost and simple method of beam detection. However, when detecting low power IR beams, camera systems have much higher sensitivity and resolution and are the preferred option.
Other applications for the cameras include laser beam alignment and inspection, optical fibre alignment, telecommunications, inspection of silicon surfaces, forensics and art restoration, infrared microscopy, infrared luminescence, and surveillance and investigation in botany, biophysics, and medicine.
