polarization optics in the path (intentional or unintentional) can cause large
variations in the output power. Only polarized lasers should be used in applications
that involve polarization optics. Due to the significant ASE background, a bandpass filter should be used for precision measurements.
Specifications common to all of the lasers featured on this page are listed in the table to the right, and model-dependent information is given in the tables
below. All but the self-contained packages feature remote interlock connections and integrated shutters. Please see the Interlock Disassembly tab for
integrating the remote interlock connector into an interlock or lab safety system.
For specialized applications, Thorlabs offers a Stabilized Red HeNe Laser, which is capable of either ±2 MHz stabilization in frequency stabilization mode, or
±0.2% power stabilization in intensity stabilization mode.
LASER SAFETY
Laser Safety and Classification
Safe practices and proper usage of safety equipment should be taken into consideration when operating lasers. The eye is susceptible to injury, even from very
low levels of laser light. Thorlabs offers a range of laser safety accessories that can be used to reduce the risk of accidents or injuries. Laser emission in the
visible and near infrared spectral ranges has the greatest potential for retinal injury, as the cornea and lens are transparent to those wavelengths, and the lens
can focus the laser energy onto the retina. Safe Practices and Light Safety
Accessories
Thorlabs recommends the use of safety
eyewear whenever working with laser beams
with non-negligible powers (i.e., > Class 1)
since metallic tools such as screwdrivers can
accidentally redirect a beam.
Laser goggles designed for specific
wavelengths should be clearly available near
laser setups to protect the wearer from
unintentional laser reflections.
Goggles are marked with the wavelength range
over which protection is afforded and the
minimum optical density within that range.
Laser Safety Curtains, Laser Barriers and
Blackout Materials can prevent direct or
reflected light from leaving the experimental
setup area.
Thorlabs' Enclosure Systems can be used to
contain optical setups to isolate or minimize
laser hazards.
A fiber-pigtailed laser should always be turned
off before connecting it to or disconnecting it
from another fiber, especially when the laser is at power levels above 10 mW.
All beams should be terminated at the edge of the table, and laboratory doors should be closed whenever a laser is in use.
Do not place laser beams at eye level.
Carry out experiments on an optical table such that all laser beams travel horizontally.
Remove unnecessary reflective items such as reflective jewelry (e.g., rings, watches, etc.) while working near the beam path.
Be aware that lenses and other optical devices may reflect a portion of the incident beam from the front or rear surface.
Operate a laser at the minimum power necessary for any operation.
If possible, reduce the output power of a laser during alignment procedures.
Use beam shutters and filters to reduce the beam power.
Post appropriate warning signs or labels near laser setups or rooms.
Use a laser sign with a lightbox if operating Class 3R or 4 lasers (i.e., lasers requiring the use of a safety interlock).
Do not use Laser Viewing Cards in place of a proper Laser Barrier or Beam Trap.
Laser Classification
Lasers are categorized into different classes according to their ability to cause eye and other damage. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a
global organization that prepares and publishes international standards for all electrical, electronic, and related technologies. The IEC document 60825-1
outlines the safety of laser products. A description of each class of laser is given below:
Warning
Label
Class
Description
1
This class of laser is safe under all conditions of normal use, including use with optical instruments for intrabeam viewing. Lasers in
this class do not emit radiation at levels that may cause injury during normal operation, and therefore the maximum permissible
exposure (MPE) cannot be exceeded. Class 1 lasers can also include enclosed, high-power lasers where exposure to the radiation is
not possible without opening or shutting down the laser.
Class 1M lasers are safe except when used in conjunction with optical components such as telescopes and microscopes. Lasers
belonging to this class emit large-diameter or divergent beams, and the MPE cannot normally be exceeded unless focusing or
imaging optics are used to narrow the beam. However, if the beam is refocused, the hazard may be increased and the class may be
changed accordingly.
Class 2 lasers, which are limited to 1 mW of visible continuous-wave radiation, are safe because the blink reflex will limit the
exposure in the eye to 0.25 seconds. This category only applies to visible radiation (400 - 700 nm).
2M
Because of the blink reflex, this class of laser is classified as safe as long as the beam is not viewed through optical instruments. This
laser class also applies to larger-diameter or diverging laser beams.
3R
Lasers in this class are considered safe as long as they are handled with restricted beam viewing. The MPE can be exceeded with
this class of laser, however, this presents a low risk level to injury. Visible, continuous-wave lasers are limited to 5 mW of output
power in this class.
3B
Class 3B lasers are hazardous to the eye if exposed directly. However, diffuse reflections are not harmful. Safe handling of devices in
this class includes wearing protective eyewear where direct viewing of the laser beam may occur. In addition, laser safety signs
lightboxes should be used with lasers that require a safety interlock so that the laser cannot be used without the safety light turning
on. Class-3B lasers must be equipped with a key switch and a safety interlock.
This class of laser may cause damage to the skin, and also to the eye, even from the viewing of diffuse reflections. These hazards
may also apply to indirect or non-specular reflections of the beam, even from apparently matte surfaces. Great care must be taken
when handling these lasers. They also represent a fire risk, because they may ignite combustible material. Class 4 lasers must be
equipped with a key switch and a safety interlock.

INTERLOCK DISASSEMBLY
Interlock Disassembly
Each of Thorlabs' HeNe laser sources with an external power supply includes a remote interlock connector. The interlock connector, once disassembled, can
be integrated into a variety of other interlock systems.
To use the remote interlock connector, the metal pin needs to be removed, the top of plug taken out, and the shorting conductor from the connector removed.
The connector may then be wired into the user’s interlock system. Be sure to reinstall the plastic safety cover over the interlock before use. The interlock is at
AC line potential, so proper care must be taken to use the correct connectors and hardware. Be sure to confirm compatibility between the AC line and the
interlock system.
