Researchers Use Nano-Particles to Increase Power, Improve Eye Safety of Fiber Lasers

Friday, May 29, 2020 - 6:48pm

Put simply, it's laser light pumping a silica fiber that has been infused with rare earth ions of holmium.

Key Points: 
  • Put simply, it's laser light pumping a silica fiber that has been infused with rare earth ions of holmium.
  • "Doping just means we're putting rare earth ions into the core of the fiber, which is where all the action happens," Sanghera explained.
  • Of course, Baker pointed out, no laser can be said to be safe when it comes to the human eye.
  • The danger arises from the potential of scattered light to be reflected into the eye during a laser's operation.
