Laser-Induced Damage Threshold Testing

You pick, we measure!

How do we do it?

Professional laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) testing services are available at LIDARIS. We offer a wide range of irradiation conditions. LIDT measurements are performed in both femtosecond and nanosecond pulse duration regimes. Detailed and easy to understand measurement reports are delivered to our customers immediately after the testing. All testing procedures are conducted in accordance with guidelines of currently the latest international ISO 21254-1-2,-3 and -4 standards. Learn more about the most common and beneficial procedures below.

Non standardized testing such as R-on-1, micro-focus, rear-side and measurements in vacuum and cryogenic temperatures are available on demand. Lidaris customers get support and practical recommendations related to damage testing and optics performance either before or after testing. Also other tests and services are available on demand: Total integrated Scattering, Cavity Ring Down, Chromatic dispersion, Crystal efficiency, Transmission.
