When operating a laser safety measurements must have priority.
Laser protection consists of:
- personal protective equipment, such as laser safety goggles and gloves
- Curtains / barriers
The number of filters and frames available for safety goggles is difficult to oversee. Too large is the variety of available models.
But it is highly important that the selection of laser safety equipment matches the used laser model to ensure a sufficient protection level. The right wave length alone does not guarantee reliable protection. At the same time other parameters like the laser power or pulseenergy, repetitionrate and pulseduration must be considered. Today polymer filters are available for many wavelengths, which have the advantage of being lighter weight and therefore more comfortable than mineral glass filters.
