Professional Laser Damage testing:

Exposed to intense laser irradiation, optical elements tend to break. It is not a question of "if", but rather the question of "when" it will happen. To avoid unexpected situations, you should test laser-induced damage threshold of your optical elements.

Lidaris provides a professional Laser-Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT) testing service. Testing is available at:

  • CW, ns, ps, fs regimes
  • From IR to UV
  • Air, vacuum

Standard testing procedures are conducted in accordance with the guidelines of the latest existing international ISO standards 21254-1-2,-3 and -4. Nonstandardized testing such as R-on-1, raster scan, micro-focus, rear-side testing is available on demand.
