Abstract : The patent describes a laser power-energy meter which includes a photo-diode acting as a current generator whose output is directly proportional to the optical power incident upon it. The meter provides a direct measurement of optical energy on a per pulse basis on single or repetitive laser pulses by measuring each pulse individually and storing and displaying the energy of the largest received. It also provides a measurement of the power of CW lasers. The measurements are in terms of amount of energy which would enter the human eye. The meter is battery operated and portable.
