Paper Abstract

The technology of coatings is assessed in relation to the four main operating modes of lasers viz. u.v., high/medium power visible, near infra red and low power visible. It is assessed that though the majority of the systems in current commercial use are of the high power u.v. type because of the lack of availability of suitably sensitised coatings, great efforts are being made to provide coatings compatible with medium to low Dower lasers. A survey of the systems disclosed in the patent literature potentially able to achieve the objective is discussed.
