Abstract:

In a series of experiments to investigate threshold reginal damage produced by CW helium-neon lasers wavelength 632.8 nm, it was found that lasers with identical beam divergence and output powers but different amplifiercavity parameters produce different amounts of retinal damage. The source of this discrepancy has been traced to mode locking in one of the lasers used. Author
