Laser Safety Industries has a complete line of Diode (980 nm) laser safety glasses and goggles. Our laser glasses meet ANSI Z136 standards for laser protection. Diode laser safety glasses and goggle are available in polycarbonate, glass, and high-visibility dielectric coated laser filters. CE certified Diode laser products available.
Coated laser safety glasses provide you high OD’s at very specific wavelengths giving you the most visibility.
Applications of laser diodes can be categorized in various ways. Most applications could be served by larger solid state lasers or optical parametric oscillators, but the low cost of mass-produced diode lasers makes them essential for mass-market applications. Diode lasers can be used in a great many fields; since light has many different properties (power, wavelength & spectral quality, beam quality, polarization, etc.) it is interesting to classify applications by these basic properties.
Many applications of diode lasers primarily make use of the "directed energy" property of an optical beam. In this category one might include the laser printers, bar-code readers, image scanning, illuminators, designators, optical data recording, combustion ignition, laser surgery, industrial sorting, industrial machining, and directed energy weaponry.
Medicine and especially Dentistry have found many new applications for diode lasers. The shrinking size of the units and their increasing userfriendlieness makes them very attractive to clinicians for minor soft tissue procedures. The 800nm - 980nm wavelengths have a high absorption rate for hemoglobin and thus make them ideal for soft tissue applications.
