Two Experts represented Seibersdorf Labor GmbH at the International Laser Safety Conference (ILSC) in Atlanta (20.-23.3.2017), organized by Laser Institute of America (LIA).
Dr. Karl Schulmeister (Head Laser, LED, Lamp Safety) and Mathieu Jean gave several lectures. In addition Dr. Schulmeister had the honourable task to chair the Scientific Sessions.
Excerpt from “LIA Today”:
Every year, the LSSS addresses developments in regulatory, mandatory and voluntary safety standards for laser products and laser use. Chaired by Karl Schulmeister of Seibersdorf Laboratories, he emphasizes that the ILSC Scientific Sessions will continue to cover the most important topics to its attendees — including laser product safety, bioeffects, injury thresholds for the varying tissues of the eye and skin, as well as eyewear, outdoor lasers, high power lasers, materials processing and broadband incoherent radiation.
Dr. Schulmeister also noted that there are many first-time presenters contributing to the LSSS this year, “which shows that the interest and the ‘discipline’ of laser safety is ever growing and developing — away from the historical main interest in user precautions to the safety of products, particularly of consumer products which will be soon ubiquitous.”
