Abstract

The proposal describes a solution offered by SARA, Inc. in response to the problem of developing a Laser Exposure Monitoring System (LEMS) capable of directly measuring laser exposures relative to Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) limits and establishing the boundaries of the Nominal Hazard Zones (NHZ). The approach uses multiple sensors to measure the irradiance and spectrum of the laser irradiation and transmit the data to a laptop computer, where dedicated software process the data to calculate MPE and derive NHZ automatically and with minimal operator intervention. In Phase 1, we will develop and demonstrate the functionality of a brass board system operating at UV, Visible and near-IR portions of the spectrum, and will also present design recommendations for the development of the desired prototype system in Phase 2.
