This device allows users to quantitatively assess the mode characteristics of a laser. For example, precision measurements and holograms need fundamental transverse mode laser output while laser ranging requires not only fundament transverse but also single longitudinal mode. This is done through performing a series of experiments and obtaining various parameters from which we can determine how the laser diode is performing. It is then possible to establish whether the laser diode meets the desired specifications. Users may perform laser mode analysis on a computer (provided by user) after connecting it to your PC. Users may also observe the mode spectrum with an oscilloscope connected (provided by user).
