Eye safety[edit]

Hi there,

the article reiterates for several laser wavelengths that they are "relatively eye safe", because the damage is not done in the retina. While the latter is true, the aspect of safety is not given. Even when the cornea is damaged, grave vision problems can occur. I urge to change the passages to refer to damage done at the outer skin of the eye rather than at the retina, but not downplay the risks involved. See laser safety for questions. Remember, the dose makes the damage.

Agreed. While the wording here was not as bad as what one often sees, the phrase "eye safe" should be abolished, even when qualified by "relatively". Certain wavelengths have a higher threshold for eye damage than others. I have rephrased the article to say so.--Srleffler (talk) 03:44, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Spelling error[edit]

The word is Aluminum not Aluminium. Thank you -- Am wake (talk) 11:30, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

It's not a spelling error. The word is "aluminium" outside North America, and according to IUPAC this is the preferred international name for the element.--Srleffler (talk) 04:03, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

history[edit]

it is not enough to say what it is. how about: it was developed in [year] by [name] of[country]. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.144.79.129 (talk) 16:40, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

Spelling error: aluminium is actually spelled aluminum. Thank you. Physicsrocks 14:50, 8 October 2008 (UTC)
