||eyesafe2u - Fiber optic components for "eye-safe" spectral region around 2 um
Michael Písařík, MSc.
The project is focused at applied research and experimental development
of fiber-optic components for laser devices operating in spectral region
around 2 micrometers. The risk of retina damage in the human eye is more
than four orders of magnitude relaxed at these wavelengths compared to
the fiber laser emitting at around 1 micrometer that are now commonly in
use. The project addresses expected demands for key components for laser
devices in this so-called "eye-safe" spectral region that are actually
of increasing importance.
