The demand for lighter and more flexible laser protection devices is constantly increasing. Absorbing plastics have a very poor laser damage resistance which can be increased by coating the plastics with a multilayer stack. We have developed a laser protection device on the basis of multilayer coatings on polycarbonate substrates that fulfill all the requirements of cw- and pulse lasers with concern to different standards, e.g. DIN, EN, MIL, etc. This could be done by using appropriate technologies. Both the mechanical and the environmental properties, and the laser thresholds were optimized.
