Abstract:

Different types of experimental Air Force laser absorbers were evaluated as eye protective devices against laser radiation. They consisted of a light green neodymium specific polymethyl methacrylate PMMA visor, dark blue ruby-specific PMMA visor, light orange argon ion-specific PMMA visor, light blue anti-red PMMA visor, dark orange multilaser PMMA visor for protection against ruby and HeNe, dark orange multilaser PMMA visor for protection against UV, argon ion, frequency doubled Nd, GaAs and neodymium, multilaser spectacle goggles made of cellulose propionate, broadband IR-protection PMMA plates, and broadband IR protection CP goggle lenses. Results of optical density measurements at conventional low light levels and Q-switch laser powers are compared for bleaching and maintenance of desired attenuation. Modified author abstract
