This International Standard defines basic terms, symbols and units of measurement for the field of laser technology in order to unify the terminology and to arrive at clear definitions and reproducible tests of beam parameters and laser-oriented product properties.
NOTE The laser hierarchical vocabulary laid down in this International Standard differs from that given in IEC 60825-1. ISO and IEC have discussed this difference and agree that it reflects the different purposes for which the two standards serve. For more details see informative Annex A.
