Laser Damage Certification

Laser Damage Certification offered by LIDARIS is the way how you get control over unstable optics manufacturing steps. Unrepeatable loose abrasive polishing or optical coating deposition processes are good examples  of such cases. Accordingly the quality of optics manufacturing varies from batch to batch. This causes serious problems for industrial applications of lasers. In example most of optics end users (laser system developers) require guarantee for their products to perform reliably. A non destructive Laser Damage Certification procedure is used to ensure the quality of the optics in large quantities. Thanks to LIDARIS you can do this under certain irradiation conditions before placing it into the laser system. Following the ISO requirements the significant part component is exposed with your predefined laser fluence. After the exposure the optical surface the sample is inspected for damages under the microscope. Every irradiated site is mapped by taking images under Nomarski microscope. The Laser Damage Certification tests are non-destructive in case optics meets the expected characteristics. Otherwise optics fails the test and is damaged. These tests are useful in the case you want to test expensive and unique optical pats. The advantages offers by Laser Damage Certification are:

  • they provide insurance for quality,
  • essentially are non-destructive,
  • they save money and ensure confidence.


Typically, laser system manufacturers, resellers and optic manufacturers testing large amount of optics benefit from Laser Damage Certification. Accordingly, these tests must be highly personalized to fit the customer’s needs. Our service provides full guidance for planning and executing work in order to reduce expenses and time consumption.
