Title: Laser output detector

Abstract: A laser output detector is provided which comprises: a convertor unit having a light sampling port to be located adjacent a projecting portion of a laser beam projector for sampling a fraction of a convergent portion of a laser beam projected from the laser beam projector or a fraction of a non-convergent portion of the laser beam outside the convergent portion of the laser beam, and adapted to convert the sampled laser beam fraction into an electrical signal; and a detection circuit for computing the energy amount of the projected laser beam on the basis of the electrical signal outputted from the convertor unit.
