Irradiation tests on materials for workplace shielding and protective walls
Demonstrationsversuch zur Laserbestrahlung eines Wandelements.

The group ”Safety Technology“ carries out laser irradiation tests and measurements on materials for workplace shielding and protective walls in order to evaluate the suitability of these materials for the protection against laser radiation.


For the irradiation tests, a measurement setup meeting the relevant standards is provided. The testing of materials is carried out according to DIN EN 12254 for workplace shielding and according to DIN EN 60825-4 for protective walls.

The Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) is determined, if necessary under consideration of the Foreseeable Exposure Limit (FEL) for the given application. The lasers available on-site are used for the irradiation, taking into account their wavelength, output power and mode of operation (continuous wave (cw) or pulsed with specific pulse parameters).

This service is, among others, relevant for the following areas:

Imaging processes:

  • SEM images

Measurements and analyses:

  • Material testing

Consulting, development and contract research:

  • Occupational safety, environmental protection
  • Minimization of radiation, emission control
  • Hazard analyses for laser systems
  • Laser safety
  • Technology consulting and transfer

We will be happy to discuss your individual requirements. Please feel free to contact us.
