Using BH1750 to measure Laser intensity

Hello every one

I have a question.

Can I use BH1750 Light sensor to measure laser pointer intensity?

If it can, please give me some code.

I'm a beginner.

Thank you.

For under $2.00 on Ebay, I would think you can find out quite cheaply! The way for a beginner to learn is to BEGIN! Try some examples. Then connect the light sensor and follow the examples you can find using Google.

Here's a good place to start. Most of the commands have a simple example.

PS
As far as the laser is concerned, it depends on it's wavelength and beam size at the the detector. You will have to consult the spec sheet for the details.

now i have same question, can we use bh1750 sensor for measuring laser intensity of light?

NO. You need cheap peltier module. Paint black one side & add MASSIVE heatsink to the other. Than heat black side with a laser. The thermoelectric power produced by peltier module will be proportional to the laser power.
