Can a 100mW laser burn?

Any laser above 100mW will be considered a burning unit, BUT, not all are created equal. The higher the mW power the greater the burning ability, so if a 100mW can just pop a black balloon and light a match, it will not be able to cut through electrical tape.

Is a 100mW laser powerful?

This is a genuine FDA and CE approval 532nm handheld laser that is nearly 8000 times as powerful as the sun. It is a Class IIIB laser that fulfills high efficiency in industrial alignment and pointing in various scientific research and industrial fields.

How far can a 100mW laser go?

At 100mW, a CO2 laser won’t go far because it’ll encounter sufficient CO2 to be absorbed fairly quickly — I’d guess a couple of miles-ish. If you meant 100MW, well it’ll exit the atmosphere.

Are 100mW lasers illegal?

In the U.S., it is legal under federal law to own a laser of any power. But often people talk about “illegal laser pointers”. This is somewhat confusing shorthand meaning that the manufacturer or seller illegally called a laser above 5 milliwatts a “pointer”, or illegally promoted it for pointing purposes.

What is a Class 3 laser pointer?

Class 3 lasers are subdivided into Class 3A (output < 5mW) and Class 3B (output > 5mW). Class 3 and 4 lasers can damage the eye in a time less than the blink reflex and because of this Class 3B and 4 lasers are subject to strict controls under the University’s laser safety program.
