Paper Abstract

The measurement of total scatter losses is a major prerequisite for the development, optimization and commercialization of high quality optical components. Especially in laser technology, optical scattering gained of importance in the source of the development of laser system with ever increasing output power and improved beam parameters. Besides its influence on the efficiency of laser systems and the beam steering arrangement, total scattering is an important safety aspect for application of these laser systems in materials processing, medicine and fundamental research. As a consequence of this global trend, working groups of TC 172/SC 9 initialized the development of an International Standard for the measurement of total scattering in optical components.
