Hi guys,
I want to gain a deeper understanding of laser thermo dynamics for general learning and so I can optimise my projector designs.

I have been looking at this unit from Pico Technology.
USB TC-08 Thermocouple Data Logger.

This company looks like they make a great family of test equipment.
I would like to buy a Coherent FieldMaxII eventually and have a setup so I can log temerature and laser power output at the same time.

Has anybody had experience with any of the PicoTech gear?

I would like to eventually buy a good scope to, budget up to around $1700US.

Could anyone suggest what combination of test equipment would be useful in the context of learning and optimising laser light show system?
