New LRG 36 Glasses with Improved Field of Blocking and Reduced Reflection!
Transportation operators, such as pilots or train conductors and law enforcement personnel often come under attack by commonly available laser pointers. The glare associated with these attacks can cause dangerous distraction or, in some instances, temporary blindness. A report by the FAA estimates the number of incidents in 2017 will be 6335. More than 90% of strikes came from green (532 nm) lasers in 2016.
Leveraging our industry-leading optical coating technologies Iridian Spectral Technologies developed our newest Laser Reflection Glasses, LaseReflect, LRG36 to address these needs. Our multi-layer dielectric thin-film solutions provide high transmittance with deep, narrow blocking to maximize laser reflection while minimizing the impact on light levels and colour discrimination for the remainder of the visible spectral region. The new LRG36 glasses also incorporate new technology to reduce any distraction from ambient light in cockpit and enhance the angle of blocking of the green laser light to 25 degrees..
These glasses are designed to provide high transmission between the reflected bands, including in the NIR which allows use in low-light conditions and can be compatible with night-vision systems. The additional 1064nm (NIR) blocking provides protection from the high power 1064nm light emitted from green lasers that have been designed without a NIR filter (common in cheap, readily available laser pointers). This invisible 1064nm laser wavelength can be hazardous to vision if an operator is exposed.
