Calculating laser fluence - so confused | Physics Forums- laser spot size equation ,Jan 25, 2014· The spot size is 10 mm diameter, or 0.5 cm radius ... thus spot size is A=pi (0.5)^2 cm^2 = pi/4 So the fluence is F2=400/pi mJ/cm^2 and F3=266/pi mJ/cm^2. So the fluence varies from F2=85.8 mJ/cm^2 to F3=127 mJ/cm^2. So: fluence = (average power)/rep rate/area of spot Just be sure to use consistent units throughout the calculation.Laser Optics Calculators - buildlog.netIf you know your the aperture at the laser tube, the divergence and the length from the tube aperture to the lens, you can calculate the beam diameter at the lens.
