Abstract

The potential health hazards associated with high power laser systems are not limited to the direct beam. In addition to the obvious hazards or direct beam exposure of personnel, environmental problems may arise from electrically energized equipment, excessive noise from the laser itself, and from hazardous fumes, gases, and vapors originating from components of the laser or from the target material.
