Paper Abstract

Scanning light sources in biophotonic devices are considered as either extended or pulsed sources when their potential optical hazard is evaluated. While the existing evaluation criteria are directly applicable to scanning light sources in most cases, different dwell-time and overlap between the beams need to be taken into account to obtain maximum irradiation. The effect of dwell-time and overlap of scanning light source on the irradiation of lights to skin was theoretically and experimentally analyzed in this report.
