Laser Safety Glasses

Laser safety glasses and goggles are stored in a steel storage bin shelving directly to the left as you enter the lab (KEB 2135).  Please be careful to return your classes to the correct bin after use.  Conversely, always consult the label on the glasses frame to ensure that you are wearing the appropriate protective eyewear for the wavelength that you will be using.
