Abstract:

The hazard of GaAs diode array lasers with their searchlight-like beams must be evaluated differently than conventional lasers. This report evaluates the ocular hazards of Solid State Laser, Type ANAAQ-7, one of the GLINT series of illuminators. It was found that an optical density of 1.39 is required for protection within a distance of 22.4 m. from the laser for a 5-second exposure. Author
