Ocular Hazard of the GaAs Laser
FRANKFORD ARSENAL PHILADELPHIA PA
Pagination or Media Count:
The GaAs laser is used in intrusion alarm systems, secure communication links, and short distance range-finders. By use of multiple diode arrays, high average power visually covert illumination is possible for night vision and range gated systems. Each of these applications exposes human eyes to GaAs laser radiation, and thus it is necessary to determine the ocular hazard of these lasers. An experimental determination is reported of the damage threshold of ocular damage using a GaAs laser.
