About This Webinar
With a more thorough understanding of Laser-Induced Damage Threshold (LIDT) specifications, your business can avoid unnecessary manufacturing costs. This webinar will cover ISO LIDT specifications and how they can affect optics manufacturing. It will provide you with a better understanding of LIDT testing and more comprehensive knowledge of laser optics manufacturing.

Behind the single number that is reported from LIDT testing according to ISO 21254-1 lies a complex landscape of parameters and testing conditions. LIDT testing can be performed to this standard in a method that allows significant leeway for optical component producers to specify components in a fashion that does not correspond to real-world applications.

This webinar will provide you with an understanding of what a specified LIDT value means and how it affects your application. In addition, it will explain the difference between achieving a single LIDT test value in small quantities and consistently meeting a specified LIDT in production. This difference, combined with choosing test parameters that are not relevant for real-world applications, can result in the frequent over-specification of damage threshold values that can lead to higher costs.
