Abstract
The growing use of helium cadmium lasers in commercial applications is examined. Particular attention is paid to the reasons for selecting a low power cadmium laser over an argon ion laser for specific applications. Suitability of wavelength to the application, long term reliability and cost per milliwatt hour of use are considered. Life test statistics on the Liconix 10mwatt hecd laser tube are detailed.
