Visualize much higher speed laser power meter readings than the ThorLabs Optical power meter software. Use zmq and multiple visualization modes to show instantaneous and long term laser power meter trends. This is used at Wasatch Photonics for laser output power stability of our laser can diodes.

It's also useful for power on visualizations of the various mode hops and other instabilities as the laser transitions through various temperatures and feedback loops.

We use this in concert with a BoardTester script to create a long term data logging setup that also permits high resolution instantaneous visualization.

FastPM100 is one of the first applications that uses the PySideApp starter project. This is essential for high speed visualization and lag-free hardware acquisitions.
