You would need a reputable laser power meter - like one from Coherent, the Lasercheck. Or a nice Thermal sensor type - as offered by Ophir {A weee bit costly there !} Or one of the Andover Holography LPM-1 laser power meters...

sometimes you can luck out and find a great deal on Ebay on some used equipment - but sometimes that is a little risky !

Normally the bottom line reputable meter is considered to be the Coherent Lasercheck. Expect to pay ~$400 for one of those. From there you advance onto thermal meter/sensor pairs and such which can run many thousands.

If you're looking to get your laser metered, you may find some tips here:

What about those [ch8804]50mW multimeter attachments that claim to be calibrated against a lasercheck?

There is another thread that discusses the evil of that "device" - and the lack of it working properly !

Knew it was too good/cheap to be true.
