Abstract
Lasers are now widely used in various industrial circumstances with changeable room conditions. If the humidity and the temperature in an operation room are not well controlled, a thin layer of water can be formed on the surfaces of laser optics by the effect of "dewfall," which could cause damages of expensive laser optics such as output coupler and/or focusing lenses. In this work, we design and develop an alarm device to monitor and control the dewfall for industrial CO2 lasers; however, the device is also useful in other cases which require alarm and control of dewfall.
