A new method for measurements of laser power, using pyrolytic carbon (PyC) levitation as torsional magnetic spring, to detect the moment of force provided by radiation pressure of laser beam is currently developed at the LCM LNE-Cnam. This new power-meter could measure laser power in the range from 300 mW to 100 W with an objective to reach a relative uncertainty of about 1%. Relative to a first experimental setup, the new configuration presented in this paper has been improved taking the main disturbing sources into account. The traceability to SI units of the measurement provided by this new power-meter is presented and discussed.
