The Laser Institute of America (LIA) is revising Z136.8 Standard for Safe Use of Lasers in Research, Development or Testing. This standard provides recommendations for the safe use of lasers and laser systems that operate at wavelengths between 180 nm and 1 mm and are used to conduct research or used in a research, development, or testing environment. This environment is not limited to universities and national laboratories, but includes medical research facilities and high-tech product development evaluation settings.
