Laser Institute of America (LIA)

Established in 1968, the Laser Institute of America (LIA) serves as the premier professional society for photonics applications, education, and safety. At its core, LIA was founded by a visionary group of academic scientists, developers, and engineers who shared an unwavering passion for transforming emerging laser technology into a thriving industry. Their mission is to cultivate global advancements in lasers, laser applications, and laser safety.

In its commitment to advancing the use of lasers and ensuring laser safety, LIA has played a crucial role as the administrative sponsor and secretariat for the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accredited standards committee, Z136 Safe Use of Lasers (ASC Z136), since 1969. These standards serve as the cornerstone of laser safety programs worldwide, establishing a solid foundation for promoting the responsible and secure use of laser technology.

Today, LIA’s unwavering commitment drives its efforts to meet the increasing need for continuing education and safety training for the use of lasers. As the leading organization in this field, LIA has trained more Laser Safety Officers than any other entity worldwide.
