Our Customers Talk
Combining fluorescent patterns and a power-meter on the same slide makes it a very good tool for air objectives.
The software is an advanced value.
We liked to have a lot of data – especially to get all the wavelengths on the same chart.
Linked with the software Daybook - still being improved - it's a powerful tool to monitor all the parameters.
I find the idea of combining all required testing tools very attractive.
We enjoyed the ease of use of the Argo-POWER, and the various possibilities offered by the patterns. We would appreciate to be able to measure laser power with an immersion objective as well.
The software stood out with functionalities like plotting the measured values: it provides a direct visualisation of the laser power with respect to the AOTF settings.

Frequently Asked Questions
For the Argo-POWERHM:
* the Argo-HM glass is warranted for 10 years. The fluorescence will be present for at least 10 years and the spatial dimensions of the patterns will not change. If you break the glass, we can repair it, so you don’t have to buy a complete new solution (information: within 5 years of production, only 0.5% of our customers claimed they broke the glass).
* The optical power-meter is an electronic device so it is warranted for 1 year. If necessary, we can replace it, so you don’t have to buy a complete solution.
The optical power meter is compatible only with air objectives. In fact, our sensor is partially waterproof and resistant to oil. So splashing or pouring oil is not a problem but we have not validated prolonged use.
The power meter response can change or deteriorate with time, especially if it has been illuminated with excessive average and/or peak power. Argolight advises to recalibrate the power meter every 12 months to ensure accuracy in the measurements. Find your Argo-POWERHM calibration file here
A minimum amount of alcohol is preferred to prevent from alcohol contamination below the detection window (power meter part).
Wearing gloves is advised. Do not use acetone.
