Montana State University Teaches Laser Eye Safety
The Optical Technology Center (OpTeC) of Montana State University won a QE25LP-S-MB-INT in the first edition of the Gentec-EO Laser Lab Awards.
It turns out that our product found a good home because it is being used in a way that contributes to make the laser world safer for many people’s eyes.
HOW THE GENTEC-EO LASER ENERGY METER IS BEING INTEGRATED IN THEIR COURSES
Montana State University is one of the very few academic organizations where students are routinely taught how to design, build, calibrate, and operate lidar systems for a wide range of applications. A badly neglected part of lidar education (and, more broadly, laser education) is laser eye safety. Therefore, they incorporated their new laser beam measurement instrument into undergraduate and graduate courses to teach about laser eye safety for lidar designers.
