BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The current safety standards for lasers operating in the 1,400- to 2,000-nanometer (nm) wavelength region are based on only a few observations at specific wavelengths. On the basis of experimental results conducted with Yorkshire pigs (Sus scrofa domestica), these standards may not accurately reflect the potential for laser injury when humans are exposed to these wavelengths. It is our belief that one of the damage mechanisms involved in these laser injuries results from… CONTINUE READING
