Abstract
Supercontinuum (SC) source is a new kind of artificial light source, having the characteristics of both laser and traditional incoherent light source, i.e., high brightness, good direction, and super broadband spectrum. The rapid development of SC source stimulates our concern on its ocular damage potency. However, the damage effects of SC source have never been explored. The retinal damage threshold of chinchilla grey rabbit induced by a Vis-infrared SC source was determined for the first time. Additionally, a theoretical method was also developed for analyzing the hazard risks of SC source.
