3D Laser Beam View combines power of 2D and OpenGL based 3D / 4D visualization.
With newly introduced support of USB 2.0 and FireWire interface our software became the most flexible laser beam analyzing solution. You can get any CCD / CMOS camera of your choose and easily combine it with our software for getting most from your laser profile information.

3D visualization for Laser Beam Profiling
MS Macrosystem was the first company on the market that introduced real time photorealistic 3D Surface View for laser beam profiling and analyzing. Since then the most realistic representation of the laser beam profiles has helped hundreds of scientists and engineers to optimize laser operation in real time. Among many the other advantages of the 3D visualization the important is the possibility to analyze fine structure of the beam. In Fig.1 we show how easy is to notice the line of lower sensitivity, resulted from incorrect calibration of the CCD imager.

Beam topography Enhanced with colors, shadows and reflections
Topographic coloring of the laser beam map using Look-Up-Tables (LUT) is a common way of beam topography and visualization in 2D domain. Our 3D surface gives you additional options of realistic shadowing of the beam profile surface. 3D Surface mapping with color and shadows provides much more information about the beam shape from the single glance.

Advanced Lighting. Why important?
Incidence light direction is something that helps observer to see fine structure of the surface. Again light adjustment in 3D space must be life time to get maximum benefit from this feature.
Beam fine structure is better visualized at certain angle of incidence (see example left). To find best angle one should be able to move light and render surfaces at least 30 FPS
Contour lines give better perception of the beam structure.
Laser Beam Contour
-3D Contour over the 3D surface given additional perception of the shape. 3D contour when used together with coloring and shadowing provides you maximum visual enhancement of the laser beam data.
Common laser beam parameters:
Centroid, Laser Power, ISO knife, ISO slit, ellipse parameters, Gaussian true least square fit to intersection beam profiles, etc. Parameters can be averaging over several measured frames and plotted in real-time.

View Tool. Intersection plots.
Tool is designed for fast surface profile inspection. It shows intersection
in real-time making easy to analyze beam surface detail.
