Laser Protection Glasses 1064 and 532 nm

Lasers operating at wavelengths of 1064 nm and 532 nm are known as Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet).

1064 and 532 nm Laser Protection Glasses

Laser Protection Glasses 1064 and 532 nmThe YAG section of the name refers to the crystal used within the laser. Most solid-state YAG lasers, be they high-powered or Q-switched, emit at 1064 nm. However, a common practice known as frequency doubling – an induced state wherein an input wave in a nonlinear material can generate a wave with twice the optical frequency – allows many Nd:YAG lasers to output at a wavelength of 532 nm, creating a green beam.

1064 nm and 532 nm Nd:YAG lasers have a variety of uses in a number of industries. They can effectively cut, melt, drill, or weld steel, as well as etch or engrave many different types of metal and plastic. Eye surgery for cataracts, glaucoma, and retinopathy can be accomplished with an Nd:YAG laser. They also serve in the removal of lesions, benign nodes, and skin cancers, and Nd:YAG lasers are frequently employed in the cosmetic medical field for hair removal and the treatment of certain vascular conditions. Soft-tissue removal by way of an Nd:YAG laser use is also popular in the dentistry field.

All Nd:YAG lasers, regardless of output wavelength rating, can cause eye damage, and technicians, operators, or any exposed personnel must wear proper protective eyewear. The direct beam of Nd:YAG can extend for many hundreds of meters (792 meters in a 10-second interval, up to 1410 meters if used continuously); even when fitted with a lens, a Nd:YAG laser has a hazard safety zone of between 6.3 and 11.3 meters. Even reflections that are diffused can cause eye damage.

Laser safety glasses that provide proper wavelength filtering for 1064 nm and 532 nm lasers fall in the Amber/Brown/Dark Orange range. The following lenses, available from Phillips Safety Products, are properly rated to protect against 1064/532 nm:

  • Diode YAG Harmonics – filter specification of OD 5+ at 190-534 nm and OD 7+ at 1064 nm. Visual Light Transference (VLT) is 28%
  • YAG Double, Harmonics – filter specification of OD 5+ at 190-534 nm and OD 6+ at 910-1070 nm. Visual Light Transference (VLT) is 26.2%.
  • Multiwave YAG, Harmonics, Alexandrite Diode – filter specification of OD 5+ at 190-534 nm and OD 7+ at 1064 nm. Visual Light Transference (VLT) is 10.6%.
  • YAG Argon Alignment – filter specification of OD 2+ at 480-532 nm and OD 5+ at 980-1070 nm. Visual Light Transference (VLT) is 12%.

Shop Laser Safety GlassesPhillips has these lenses in stock and can match them with a large selection of frames, from wraparound glasses to molded side-shield frames to goggles.
