Shutters are optical locks that block the beam path in the event of unauthorized access and thus prevent laser radiation from leaving the laser environment uncontrolled. The laser shutters either absorb the entire laser power or direct it into an external beam dump using a mirror. The shutter can be manually operated and integrated into the safety circuit of an interlock control system.
