101 Laser Protective Filter
OD Specifications (Optical Density):
OD 7+ @ 190-285 nm
OD 6+ @ 10,000-11,000 nm
: is a measure of the transmittance of an optical element for a given length at a given wavelength λ. The higher the optical density, the lower the transmittance of light at a specified waveleng. See the ANSI Z136
for more information about OD and laser glasses.
VLT (Visible Light Transmission):
: The attenuation of light by a filter in the visible spectrum. VLT is determined in relation to standard illumination and evaluated according to the daylight-adapted (photopic) or night-adapted (scotopic) conditions descriped more in the ANSI Z136.7
for Testing and Labeling of Laser Protective Equipment
. The lower the VLT, the less "visible" light is transmitted. Laser glasses
may affect the ability to see warning lights/signs or distinguis between colors.

LSOs (Laser Safety Officer) need to consider working environments, viewing conditions and beam delivery systems when making assessments and determining the correct laser glasses , goggles, barriers, or windows to protect against potentially hazardous laser radiation. Do not operate lasers without correct protective equipment and training.
