About us

LIDARIS is the high-tech company, which provides professional optics characterization services focused on Laser-Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT). LIDT numbers describe optical resistance (safe operation limit) of optical parts such as lenses, mirrors, windows, and other optical elements with intended use in high power laser systems. If measured correctly, these numbers provide evidence related to optic’s quality, which helps to make important decisions for companies that manufacture, trade, or integrate laser optics.
LIDARIS was founded in 2012 as a spin-off of the Vilnius University Laser Research Center by a group of scientists working intensively in the field of laser-induced damage phenomena. Our team gained more than 20 years of research experience in the field of laser-induced damage of optical elements and thin films. Currently, we act in the global market serving European, American, and Asian companies – the leaders of today’s laser market, including manufacturers, suppliers of optics and laser systems, and Space Agencies. More than 140 organizations worldwide use our services on a daily basis. We are also dedicated to prove the high quality service. From 2021 Lidaris is granted the ISO9001 LIDARIS certificate. Scientific contributions of LIDARIS members were 3 times awarded by the SPIE Laser Damage community. The dynamic team is committed to delivering its customers the state-of-the-art knowledge required to survive laser damage.
