Abstract

Diode and solid state lasers have become increasingly affordable with high power laser systems able to be assembled for a few hundred dollars; however, laser power meters for measuring the output of the laser beam can cost thousands of dollars. The goal of this research endeavor is to develop a high quality, inexpensive alternative to commercial laser power meter systems by using a readily available microcontroller and sensor. I will present the physical operation, design and testing of a simple laser power meter with digital signal processing.
