Paper Abstract

Aviation, commercial and military, is new area in optics that is suffering from laser threats in the last years. Dazzling and damage to pilot's eyes by laser pointers is a common threat lately. Under certain conditions, laser light, directed at aircraft can be hazardous. The most likely scenario is when bright visible laser light causes distraction and/or temporary flash blindness to the pilot, during a critical phase of flight like landing or takeoff. It is also possible, that a visible or invisible beam could cause permanent damage to a pilot's eyes. This paper presents a novel technology for protection of the human eye against laser threats in the visible range.
