Default New toy

I got my "new" power meter from fleabay !!! *It's and old Scientech 362 with sensing head. *Range from 0.001 watts to 10 watts. It looks new *
I called Scientech to ask for a user manuel and expected crap -- *Instead, they emailed me the entire book with schematics and the book for the sensor --- NO $$$. *Gotta love a company like that.

Sorry -- I've shrunk this picture to 2x3" and 7 Kbits.
OK- I got it to 4x6.....

OMG -- It's like new. *If I touch the sensor with one finger for one second, I transfer 50 mW into the calorimeter and the meter goes south! * It settles back in about 5 seconds. *It will also read pulsed output in joules total. *I've got a bid on a chart recorder to connect too !!

Mike,
I'm happy your luck changed. Knock on wood.

I know 2 of your CO2 tubes cracked. Man that's a bummer. I felt bad for you.

What kind of sensor technology is it. TEC? Thermocouple? Photoresistor?
Can you post that schematic?

I'm use a radiometer (glass vacuum bulb with b/s plates that spin around on a needle)
and a stopwatch. Flintstone technology!

It's fun to put objects in motion with photon impact!
Dust particles don't seem to move in a 40mW beam.

My sister buys me the best Bday gifts! I think it cost $40 out of Red Box.

DDL,
Funny, when I saw dig, I first thought of digital. I dig not for fossil..

Just wondering.. is there some sort of predictable relationship between rpm and laser power with those?

Yes, but you have to take several known lasers to make yourself a chart.

Bemn,
That is a good question and there must be easy answer to figure it out with some formula.
Anyway it tells me true relative power. No nonsense with wavelenth I think.
The glass reflects some power but my lasers are not polarized so if I rotate beam axis reflection loss does not change.
When I get more lasers I'll try to formulize it.
Bearing friction VS rpm should be the only problem in the formula?

heres a quick test I did.
1W 808 rev/sec 23/10 this LD fast axis is terible. lots of power lost, didn't hit target.
40mW 532 rev/sec 3/10

Sorry to continue keeping this thread off-track, but...
With my radiometer it seems to make a difference where on the vanes I focus the dot (i.e. how far from center) and how large a beam diameter.
(Or I can go really tight and burn the black coating ).
